Dating back to 1500
(when the Cubs last won)
Each year over 14 billion pencils are made
One tree makes 300,000 pencils
Each can draw a line 70 miles long
is sharpened 17 times
can write 45.000 words
(John Steinbeck used over 60 a day)
Number 1 best seller is a number 2
And in 1870 Henry Chadwick invented the scorecard
where 1 number 2 pencil records 6-4-3
