This pen is crafted from authentic Boston Garden basketball floor which was in use from 1946-1999.
- Measuring 5" long and a slim 7/16" in diameter, this rhodium-plated rollerball pen features the floor wood twice: the barrel is turned from the wood and the painted surface is set in the top. Engraved with arena name. Ships with rollerball cartridge (Schmidt P8126 or P8127) and can also accept "Parker style" ballpoint refill cartridges.
- Also available in the Classic style, with ships with and accepts only ballpoint cartridges. This style has been discontinued as it will no longer be produced after current stock is sold.
- Officially licensed by TD Garden, each pen comes gift-boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity.
After the original Boston Garden was demolished in 1999, Tokens & Icons acquired the last 9 of 11 panels of the parquet floor directly from TD Garden.
Additional Product Information
Boston Garden opened in 1928 and was originally named Boston Madison Square Garden as it was designed by Tex Rickard built the third Madison Square Garden. Rickard, who also promoted boxing, aimed to build an arena with this sport in mind. Thus fans were very close to the action and this, combined with the Celtics' supposed ability to know where a ball would bounce on the iconic parquet floor, was thought to have contributed to the team's hometown advantage. The parquet floor was originally built in the Boston Arena and moved to the Garden in 1952. When Boston Garden closed in 1999, Tokens & Icons was selected by the arena's management to celebrate the storied basketball floor. Eleven five-foot square pieces remained and Tokens was entrusted with nine of them. These panels have been used to craft this item. Boston Garden hosted nineteen NBA Finals, four NBA All-Star games and was the first arena to host the NBA and Stanley Cup Finals in 1957.
