Southsea 1951 Chess Tournament Souvenir Postcard

Post by John Upham » Fri May 30, 2014 10:45 am

I would have liked to post this in the Chess History section but rightly enough it has to go here....

BCM is offering for sale (by auction) one of Brian Reilly's tournament postcards. Brian would often attend the tournament dinner and pass around a postcard for the players to sign. This one is from the Southsea 1951 tournament and features the following signatures:

Nicholas Rossolimo,
Savielly Tartakower,
Count Albéric O'Kelly de Galway,
Palle Ravn,
Rudolf Teschner,
AH Trott,
Leonard W. Barden,
Harry Golombek,
Manfred Christoph,
Stefan Fazekas,
Hans Egon Ditt,
Dennis Morton Horne,
SON Hawes,
Richard Hilary Newman

This may be of some interest to a collector.

Full details may be found here

The postcard itself is of interest to collectors being one by Henk J. Rotgans.
