Unpublished 1964 Fischer Simul Tour Pictures at Kodak. Rochester, NY

Posted by Bold Commerce Collaborator on

Over 15 years ago,  we acquired a folder of unpublished photograph of the Kodak stop of Bobby Fischer's simul tour in 1964.  The simul was closed to all non-Kodak employees and no one other than the Kodak Photographers were allowed allowed to take pictures.
Jump up 30 years and a friend at Kodak was tasked to clean out some cabinets in the archive.  As he was dumping photos by the handful in the garbage,  he noticed a folder full of pictures playing chess.  Luckily for us,  and now you,  he had the foresight to hold on to them.  After some negotiations,  we were lucky enough to end up with them.  
Now I am sitting on 17 photos from the simul exhibition.  Alas,  the negatives were not lucky enough to be saved.  Of the 17 pics,  there are 13 with Bobby Fischer featured in the frame.  I am thinking about doing a limited print run of 100 prints/picture on 18" X 24" canvas.  Each canvas will be numbered.  We would love to get customer feedback on the idea and what they think each picture might be worth.  Just wait till you see the picture of Robert James Fischer at the Demo board explaining a Queens pawn opening!
