Daily Mirror Christmas Shopping Guide: Scaccomatto Chess Set

SCACCOMATTO_01
A Scaccomatto chess set has been listed on EBay. The set, designed by Franco Rocco, is one of the more unusual ones you may encounter. All the pieces fit together to make two cubes, one brass and the other chrome. This set comes with a glass chessboard, a wooden box for the two cubes and the original manuals.

The last time I saw one of these sets on EBay, in 2010, it was only $1,600. The asking price for this one is $13,000.

As with anything on EBay, an item and vendor should be thoroughly evaluated before submitting a bid.
