As a woodworker for since 1995 and turner since 2007, Stadium Pen Blanks was founded in October of 2018 as an off-shoot of Hardin Penworks. I had recently found some pen blanks from a few popular stadiums, but then the Boston Red Sox won the World Series. From a single Fenway Park stadium seat, Stadium Pen Blanks was born.
Since then SPB has acquired material and blanks from 190+ stadiums for 220+ sports teams, 35+ US Navy Ships, 30+ vintage aircraft, several historic buildings, and culturally significant pen blank material.
SPB was the driving force that helped shape the market for professional and fancy Certificates of Authenticity. Today many vendors, distributors, and artisans have upped their game with the new standard of what a nice COA should look like.
