London 1946 & Hastings 1945/6 Tournament Souvenir Postcard

Post by John Upham » Fri May 30, 2014 11:20 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 London 1946 "Victory" and Hastings 1945/6 International Tournaments and features the following signatures:

Paul Devos
Herman Steiner
Arnold Denker
Folke Ekström
Lodewijk Prins
Karel Opocenský
Martin Christoffel
Sir George Alan Thomas
James Macrae Aitken
Savielly Tartakower
Elaine Saunders
Julius Du Mont
Francesco Lupi
Antonio Medina
Arturito (Arturo) Pomar
Joseph Stone
Brian Reilly

See http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chess.pl?tid=81949 for examples.

This may be of some interest to a collector.

Full details may be found here :)
