Description

A Pele Game-Used #10 Brazil Home Shirt & Signed World Cup Champions Pennant (circa 1970).  The Athleta manufactured shirt was worn by Pele on the field of play during Brazil’s epic 1970 season which saw Pele lead Brazil to one of the most famous World Cup victories over Italy (4-1) at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico.  The shirt pre-dates Brazil shirts that featured the 3 embroidered stars above the crest which denoted Brazil’s 3 World Cup victories, appropriately dating this shirt to 1970.  This shirt would not have been worn at the 1970 World Cup, but would date to just prior to the World Cup in the summer of 1970, or very shortly after prior to the addition of the 3 stars above the Brazil crest.

Upon close inspection, you will come to find the following signs of use throughout these stunning items:  The shirt has some small holes throughout, most notably to the center chest.  There is a fold line to the lower back which has some light holes and snags, which is likely evidence of having been stored folded in the same position for many years.  The numbers and club crest remain firmly attached.  The garment has the odor of a garment of 47  years old.  The ‘athleta’ manufacturers label is clear and colorful and remains firmly stitched to the garment.

Please take a moment to review the authentication notes provided below, as well as the provided photographs:

(Shirt)

1.  Manufactured by Athleta, Brazil’s uniform supplier for this era.  Appropriate Athleta label stitched into neckline.

2.  Reinforced triangle shaped section underneath manufacturer label.

3.  CBD crest stitched to chest.

4.  Pele’s famous #10 stitched to back.  Cloth numbers.

5.  Green ribbed collar and sleeve cuffs.

6.  Garment does not carry a size label, which is appropriate for this era.  The garment most closely resembles a size Medium.

7.  The shirt pre-dates shirts with the 3 embroidered stars above the Brazil crest which were added some time after Brazil’s 1970 World Cup victory.

8.  Additional details apply.

A stunning Pele jersey dating to 1970, perhaps Pele’s  most iconic time period in football.  Item comes from a superb private collection in Brazil.  This is the finest Pele example to be offered to date.  Truly special.
