They speak of a time when an American was the World Champion. That time was 1972. The CHAMPION 1972 chess shirt was created in recognition of historical event.
The Champion chess shirt is a two color design printed on a heather-gray, 90%-10% cotton-poly blend.
Inspired by the classic rock festival shirts, Chess Club is a four color design using discharge inks on a white, 100% ring-spun cotton shirt. The discharge inks produce a super soft feel that is "invisible" to the touch and deliver an authentic washed vintage feel.

An ever-so-slight departure from traditional Staunton design
This is a wonderful set for the collector who prefers a distinctive chess set for a modest price without having to in purchase a more expensive exotic wood for the dark pieces. Such a nice diversion from plain old monotone light and dark pieces!
Just received this set today. It is great. My son will be amazed by it when he opens it on Christmas. I cannot wait also as I am dying to play a game or two with him on it. The pieces of this set are beautiful. The horses are the finest with such beautiful detail. Thank You House of Staunton for a great set and many father-son matches to come.....

I loved the little pieces, I have had a set from over twenty years ago and used the pieces with a different folding board that matched the size. The board it comes with stores your game intact. I was really happy to see that this set was still being made same as original.
