Pele is one of the greatest players in football history, celebrated for his grace on the pitch and his astonishing career achievements. The legendary Brazilian striker holds the record for most goals scored (1,283 across 1,363 games). He’s also the only player to win three world cups (in 1958, 1962 and 1970). In 1999 FIFA voted Pele Player of the Century. He remains a hero for football fans the world over.
This spectacular Brazil number 10 football shirt is an authentic piece of football history. Pele is believed to have worn it in a Brazil v Chile friendly on October 4, 1970. He’s signed "Edson Pele" on the chest. While the signature is slightly faded, the shirt is in superb condition.
At that time Brazil were fresh from their third World Cup victory, announced by the three stars above the badge on the shirt. They trounced Chile 5-1 at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Pele scored once.
After the game Pele gifted this shirt to Brazilian team masseur Abilio Jose de Silva – better known by his nickname Nocaute Jack (Knockout Jack). The piece is accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Abilio’s daughter Silvia.
Game worn Pele jerseys are rare and in high demand among collectors all over the world. This is an opportunity to own a very fine example.
