Satyajit Ray Lobby Cards

Just as I did a few weeks ago with Novag Robot Adversary, I'm using the current edition of Top eBay Chess Items by Price to return after a short break from blogging. The item pictured below, titled 'India Bengali Cinema 1977 THE CHESS PLAYERS set of 10 lobby cards Satyajit Ray', sold for $722.50, Buy-It-Now.

Besides photos of the lobby cards, the auction had no other useful information in its description. I once featured the film in an August 2009 edition of Video Friday, Shatranj Ke Khilari, and more information is available on a Wikipedia page of the same name, Shatranj Ke Khilari, 'a 1977 Indian film by Bengali director Satyajit Ray, based on Munshi Premchand's short story'.
