Synonymous with soccer throughout the globe over a lengthy and remarkable international career and beyond, Brazilian native Edson Arantes do Nascimento is more commonly known as Pele: a celebrated athlete who netted 1,281 career goals and was resultantly the highest paid player in the world. This shirt was worn and autographed by the pitch legend as he played for the Brazilian National Team during the 1960s. The yellow cotton pullover garment features a green-on-blue crest sewn to the left breast with gold and white embroidered accents and “CBD” (Confederacao Brasileira de Desportos) embroidered in blue. On the right breast, Pele has signed in black fiber tip marker (“9” strength) and has inscribed “Do amigo.” On the back, Pele’s famed number “10” is sewn in teal block-style canvas numerals with green embroidery along the edges. Within the green V-neck collar, a vintage "ATHLETA" label has contents printed in Portuguese, The collar measures 3” in width, while green stretch ribbed cotton comprises the long sleeve endings.
