We are very proud to introduce our rendition of these very famous and sought after set of chess pieces. We put this design to production after receiving numerous requests to produce a credible reproduction chess set as used in the legendary Fischer v Spassky 1972 match played in Reykjavik. So here is your chance to own a superb reproduction of these wonderful chess pieces as used by the legendary grandmasters Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky.

 A little information about the sets:

There were two chess sets used at the 1972 World Chess Championship: this set for the 3rd game only, and another set for all the other games which is now in possession of The Chess Memorial Museum in Reykjavik. This chess set was given to Guomundur Thorarinsson, the President of the Icelandic Chess Federation as a birthday present in 1972. Comes with a letter of authenticity which is signed by Guomundur Thorarinsson (President), and Hilmar Viggosson (Treasurer). Also included is a photocopy of the minutes from a board meeting dated November 18, 1972 written in Icelandic. Item number 13 states that the chess set was presented to Mr. Thorarinsson as a gift. A translation of item 13 is "Agreed to present to Gudmundur G. Thorarinsson as a gift a chess board and chessmen used in the match". Incredible piece with provenance!
