How old is old?
You're as old as you feel. Age is just a number. Chess is a game for a lifetime, anytime, anywhere in the world. Mental activity is good for the brain, as long as you don't become obsessed with it at the expense of other life matters.

Here is a fine example: https://www.chess.com/article/view/...

* SkySports has a fine collection: Game Collection: Old men (and women) vs. time

* Brilliancies: Game Collection: brilliacies

* Some Miniatures of the Champs: Game Collection: Champions miniature champions

FTB scans a variety of games each day, and gradually adds 'em as he comes across such qualifiers. Surely some games are in both collections.

* Did it take?
