      Our Price: $26.95

      This is an exact reproduction of the original 1969 classic work, My 60 Memorable Games by Bobby Fischer.

It turned out that what they thought were mistakes by Fischer were mistakes by themselves. Fischer's analysis was correct. Their's was wrong. As a result, Fischer famously went on the radio to denounce those who claimed to have "improved" on his work.
