RARE SNAP-ON TOOLS LIMITED EDITION DRUEKE CHESS SET WITH A WALNUT CHESS BOARD. Board and chessmen never used. This is a very rare Drueke chess set. These were made for Snap-On as a special sales award. These could not be bought, only won by dealers in a year long sales contest over 20 years ago.
The chess pieces themselves are the unique part of this chess set. They are made of the same metal that Snap-On uses to make their sockets and wrenches. The pieces are nickel/chrome plated just as the sockets and wrenches are also. One set of pieces is chrome, and the other set is gold chrome plated.The base of each piece has Snap-On engraved with the part number that that particular chess piece was made out of. For example the knight has Snap-On 5/8 S9706KFUA---which is specialty socket, the bishop has Snap-On SX3 which is an 1/2 drive 3 inch extension..... The pieces are stored in a miniature black tool box replica. Which measures 8.5"X 4.75"x 4.75. The Walnut board is 21" x 21" with Snap-On lazer engraved on two ends of the boarder. The squares on the board are approximately 2. The King and Queen are approximately 3 1/4 inches tall, the Bishop is 3 inches tall, so this is a full size set , and heavy weight.
Very nice and unique chess set which is virtually impossible to find and. For serious collectors that want things not many people have or can find.
