Alex Baburin's 40th auction took place on 13-15 June. There were 94 lots posted at his GM Square Auction site.

They included magazines (for example, an almost complete run of The Chess-Monthly), tournament books, games collections, rare books and chess memorabilia.

The biggest ticket was Opposition et cases conjuguees, by Duchamp and Halberstadt, which was sold for €724. A book in Dutch signed by all players of the 1948 World Championship fetched €250. The first volume of The Chess-Monthly (September 1879 – August 1880) went for €219.43.

GM Baburin runs 5-6 online chess auctions every year. If you are interested in selling anything at his future auctions, you can contact him at baburin@gmail.com
