I have found a copy of a B&W photo of Sam Gonotsky-Mike Lieber, that I thought I would share. I had originally posted that this was taken during their 40 game match...but it was not. Their 40 game match was played in New York, this photo was taken outside of the home of Mr. Pennell, who is standing on the far right. This is in Flint, Michigan.

I. Joseph Lannin, who owned the hotel, sponsored the match. He was a great checker lover, and at one time Sam lived at the hotel for a while."

I haven't heard about or seen any trophies, but I'll ask around.
