Mandela Memorabilia Auction features Special Chess Set

Hello chess blog friends, a special chess set as part of auction of Nelson Mandela memorabilia has taken place in Johannesburg, South Africa. The chess set - of figures from either side of the apartheid battle - was auctioned along with several other items. Here is a nice photograph of the chess set via the BBC website, where you can also read a nice report on the full auction.
