Bobby Fischer Chess Set

There used to be a greatest chess player of all time, Robert James "Bobby" Fischer and there used to be one of his all time favorite chess set. It was called "The 1950 Dubrovnik chess set". In a radio interview Bobby Fischer stated, "This (1950 Dubrovnik chess set) is the best chess set I have ever played on, it is marvellous."
