Limited editions seems to be the only way to pay homage or honour an idol these days, or so Montegrappa thinks. The Italian maker of fine writing instruments has announced a companion luxury pen set to the acclaimed “Icons” writing instruments honoring the legendary Muhammad Ali. Commemorating the 35th Anniversary of one of his greatest fights, “A Thrilla in Manila,” the new set has been authorized by both Muhammad Ali Enterprises and Joe Frazier.
Update – Please check out the official images of the companion pen set to the acclaimed “Icons” writing instruments honouring the legendary Muhammad Ali.
Issued in a limited run of 35 sets, the gold version features an autographed framed picture showing Ali, Frazier and Padilla along with a special plexiglass display into which the pens can be placed. The silver edition will be offered in a series of 350 and will arrive in lavish boxes featuring a three-dimensional boxing glove forming the lid. Inside is a pad on which the Ali and the Frazier pens will rest. Rewriting its own history is it?
