    And rounding out the row is House of Staunton's Lasker set Jaques reproduction. Like the BCC set, it's antiqued with 4" kings, but no kingside stampings.

     

    Hi Chuck, lovely display. Is the one referenced a Lasker or Zuckertort reproduction. Looks like a Zuckertort to me but maybe I'm wrong.

    I swapped the Czech set and the MOM clock, and moved the NOJ 1950 Dubro one shelf closer to the front. The reorganization opened up room for three more organizers on the shelf. I moved the Soviet storage boards down to the floor.

     Thanks Audioq! You're right. It's an HOS Zuckertort set. I always want to call it a Lasker.

    Hi Chuck! Funny Chuck, my first set is a tournament size plastic Cavalier set....got from USCF around 1982....it's under my computer as I type this now...

    That must have taken some time to acquire/collect.

    They all look polished, dusted and clean. Awesome 🙆 work!

    Do u leave the Wood Pieces out for display or keep them in a box.

    Thanks, Lauralye! These sets all were in boxes, but now they're out on display. I have an air purifier running that really cuts down dust. I'll have to periodically dust the pieces, I'm sure. The set I've owned the longest is the plastic Cavalier, which I got around 1960 or 1970. I've been collecting maybe the past ten years.

    Chuck, (can't remember if I had asked you this before) but could you help me with this query......... Please😌! 

    The Staunton Triple Weighted White Plastic (Collectors, Fischer, Marshall, Hastings) tend to yellow after years out in open play...... 

    Would this work?

    Interesting. Honestly, I have no idea if that works.

    Very impressive! So, what’s your favourite? If you only have to play with one set all your life, what will it be.

    Fascinating! Already cheering for the next build out!
