Genius chess champion Bobby Fischer's personal collection of letters to be auctioned

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Remember our earlier post about the Philip Weiss Auctions opening bidding for the chess set used in the 1972 World Chess Championship by Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky?

We have news that some private letters written by Fischer would also be auctioned along with the signed chess board. You can also try live online bidding.

As part of their April 2, 2011 auction in the 'Folkart, Native American, & Military' category, along with several other items, up for auction will be the 1972 World Chess Championship Chess Set used by Bobby Fischer & Boris Spassky (Signed by Both). This chess set was used in the legendary “Back Room” game of the Championship held in Reykjavik, Iceland. It was given to the President of the Icelandic Chess Federation in October 1972, and comes with Letter of Authenticity. Also a collection of personal letters from Bobby Fischer will be auctioned.

We won't wrap up the post without a video. Enjoy.

Here is our earlier post on the auction:
