Eugene Torre considers the book “My 60 Memorable Games” authored by his good friend Bobby Fischer to be one of his most treasured souvenirs.
Torre showed it to Fischer upon his arrival in Manila on October 5, 2000. It had Torre’s dad’s pint-sized name stamped on the title page of the book.
Fischer carefully checked if it is a hardcover book in its first printing, published by Simon and Schuster and copyrighted in 1969 by himself.
Satisfied that all these prerequisites were present, he willingly wrote a dedication and signed it to Torre’s delight!
