The special table made for Fischer-Spassky
1972 World Chess Championship match.

Hello Everyone!

Every chess lover knows about the hype surrounding the 1972 World Chess Championship between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky. It was a key time in chess history. The match was played not only with special chess sets but also special tables that were made-to-order specially for the match. Three tables were made for the historic match.

According to The New York Times, one of those tables is now up for sale! The owner of this table is 77 years old. Both Fischer and Spassky had signed the tables. The Match Organizing Committee chairman is also willing to certify that the table up for sale is authentic.

You could check more photos of the table at this website.
