The ultimate chess 'collectable'

If you are looking for that extra special 'chess' gift, you couldn't go past the table,set and clock that was used in the 1972 Fischer v Spassky World Championship Match. And as luck would have it, one of the three tables used in that match is up for sale. The current owner, Páll G. Jonsson, was Fischer's guide during the match, and bought two of the tables at the end of the match. Now aged 77, he has decided to put one on the market. As an added bonus the table, with the built in board, is signed by both players.
Further information, including contact details to negotiate the sale are in this article from the New York Times.

Its sad that there is no anticipated price for the table. It should be auctioned off by Sotheby's!
