Photogenic Spassky

No time or enthusiasm to write a daily post? Show a picture or a set of pictures.

This series shows Spassky photos offered by eBay power seller tiqu.

Lelands Sports & Americana has acquired one of the largest collections ever from the archives of the SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER. These historic vintage photos span the entire 20th century. The San Francisco Examiner was the first paper of William Randolph Hearst. Power wielding and flamboyant, the paper was his vehicle, his voice. The Examiner , coveted by the masses for its lurid sensationalism, was as important as TV istoday to popular culture.

The photo archives were the vehicle used to create this fervor, and now the ORIGINAL PHOTOS are available for sale for the very first time. Tiqu is one of the few eBay sites chosen by Leland's to sell from this glorious collection.

Mixed in with photos of Spassky from various periods, that's Spassky's wife in the upper right, Spassky with his wife in the bottom row (same wife?), and Spassky with his son bottom left.
