Where can I buy Queen's Gambit-themed chess boards?

Retailers haven't caught up with the Queen's Gambit trend yet, so there aren't Queen's Gambit-themed chess boards on the market right now. To get a chess set that looks most like what Beth Harmon plays on, go for a vintage wooden chess set, which you can find on Etsy.
