I think of it as in the same class as mental arithmetic: sure, you have a calculator on your phone; but it's way too slow to get out of your pocket and poke at the screen when all you want is 7*9 or even 387/3. Stem-and-leaf plots let you get a quick idea of what's there, without having to write some script. These skills come in handy all the time.
Like everyone, I use a computer for non-trivial data analysis. But Tukey is usually in there, somewhere. For example his box-and-whisker diagrams are in many if not all plotting packages. They look nice and you might even have used them. But understanding the original insights lets you use these tools more effectively.
