Retro 51 is all about bright colors and unique themes. Always searching for the latest theme or trend, Retro 1951 combines modern trends with vintage quality and ideals. Started in 1990, Retro 1951 focused on unique gift writing instruments. They wanted to create a pen that shows a bit about the writer from the design. A pen makes a perfect gift that will last for years and is a token of love and friendship. Each Retro 51 has been designed, created and packaged with nostalgic Americana.
Today, the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) is working with Retro 51 to provide an exclusive, numbered pen to celebrate the “On the Shoulders of Giants” campaign. The campaign is part of the largest fundraising effort that ASF has ever embarked on. ASF was created by the Mercury 7 astronauts and it’s been on their shoulders that the organization has inspired, supported, and helped shape the next generation of inventors through the scholarship recipients. Through the success of the campaign, ASF hopes to raise $3 million to match the surcharges authorized by the U.S. Mint Apollo 11 Commemorative Coin that goes on sale in January 2019.
