    Product Code: MENWSNQ-COM

    Description

    Here's your chance to own a piece of chess history!

     

    About the Tournament

     

     

    The 2016 Sinquefield Cup is the fourth Super GM tournament to be held in Saint Louis, and it features ten of the best players on the planet including: GM Vishwanathan AnandGM Veselin TopalovGM Hikaru Nakamura, GM Fabiano CaruanaGM Levon Aronian, GM Anish GiriGM Wesley SoGM Ding LirenGM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, and GM Peter Svidler.

    To commemorative this event, the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis partnered with the House of Staunton to create a chess set worthy of the Sinquefield Cup Match. Rex Sinquefield, sponsor of the Sinquefied Cup, was an admirer (and proud owner) of the House of Staunton Imperial Collector Chessmen so it was decided that the Chessmen would be based upon our Imperial Collector pattern. Because the players would be playing on DGT Project Electronic Sensor Boards, it was decided that the Chessmen would need to feature a 3.75" King Height, allowing it to fully adhere to both USCF and FIDE tournament rules. And the Sinquefield Cup Commemorative Chessmen were born!

    In cooperation with the Chess Club and Scholastic Chess Center of St. Louis, the House of Staunton is offering the 2016 Sinquefield Cup Commemorative Chessmen. It is a limited edition Chess set, with a total of only 20 units available, with each Chess set coming with hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity that was signed by each of the 10 players. Chess sets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis ; purchase quickly to insure yourself a low production number! 

    Here's your chance to own a piece of chess history, featuring ten of the greatest players in the world, including former World Champion Vishwanathan Anand. 

     NOTE - These are not DGT-Enabled Chess Sets. They are traditionally weighted Chess Sets.

The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish.

     

    The Collector Series Luxury Chess set has been crafted to replicate the design and proportions of the original Staunton pattern Chessmen, registered by Nathaniel Cooke in March of 1849 and first manufactured by Jaques of London in September 1849. The distinctive feature of this set is the the open-mitered Bishop and original Knight design, which was originally sculpted by the Maestro, Frank A. Camaratta, Jr. With it's downturned head, flowing mane and aggressive facial expression. this is one of the finest Knights ever to grace the 64 square battlefield.
