Awesome post! I still have 50-100 of those pencils in storage. Anyone remember the video game pencils from around the same period (80-82)? I have some of those as well (sparkled -- Pacman, Galaxian, etc.). True story, I gave one of those NFL pencils to a girl I liked in 4th grade. She accepted my gift, then left me high and dry, but the joke was on her -- it was a Jets pencil.
