Jasonred : Apparently, Gobans with his signature are worth 25 million yen? Is that so???

Considering the prize money that they get for tournaments, this is pretty massive!

: Hyperpapeterie: The board in question was signed by both him and Go Seigen, on the occasion of O Rissei's defense of the Kisei. So it's not just any old board with his signature. [ext] Source
