Description

On offer:  4 items from the personal collection of former FIFA Referee Abraham Klein (who notably officiated the 1970 WC match between England & Brazil).  Abraham Klein was a notable FIFA Referee from Israel.  Klein officiated at the 1970 World Cup, taking on the notable group match versus England (1966 Winners) v Brazil (1970 winners).  Near the end of the ENG v BRA match, Klein said he blew the full-time whistle, but due to the noise none of the players heard him so he chose to let the thrilling match continue an additional few minutes.  Klein chose not to officiate at the 1974 World Cup in Germany due to fears for his safety after the Munich disaster at the 1972 Olympics.  Klein would later officiate at the 1978 & 1982 World Cups, as well as the NASL and many other matches.  Mr. Klein is now selling off much of his personal collection that he amassed during his illustrious career.

*An original/official Brazil team rosette from the 1970 FIFA World Cup.  The rosette remains framed in the original frame as displayed at Mr. Klein’s home.

*An original/official Brazil pin from the 1970 FIFA World Cup Finale.  The pin features the Brazil crest front & center, with the Brazil and Italian flags displayed on either side.  Pin measures approximately 1″ wide.

*An original/official Mexico ’70 pin from the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico.  The head of the pin measures approximately 5/8″ tall and 1/2″ wide.  Approximately 2″ in length with pin.

*An original/official 1970 FIFA World Cup Mexico Fixtures Brochure (Spanish).  This was an official tournament issued item, and was presented to and owned by notable FIFA Referee Abraham Klein, who officiated at the 1970 FIFA World Cup.  Measures approximately 4 3/4″ x 3″.  Excellent condition.

A breathtaking and exquisitely rare collection of items coming from the 1970 FIFA World Cup, from the personal collection of 1970 WC Referee Abraham Klein.
