We do what we can, here at Fountain Pen Follies, to cheer on our favorite baseball team. And this year has been magical. On Saturday night, the Chicago Cubs baseball team won the pennant for the first time in 71 years. Tonight they will play in the World Series, for the first time in 108 years. What in the fountain pen world can commemorate that? How about a Chicago Cubs Lamy Safari.
Cubs colors are blue and red with white, and a baseball is white with red stitching. My Chicago Cubs edition Safari is made from the cap of a white and red Safari, and the body of a blue Safari.
It’s inked with J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage (“Wild Ivy”), in tribute to the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field, the Cubs home park.
Go Cubs, go. And thanks for a great year.
