Edson Arantes do Nascimento, “Pelé” is widely regarded as one of the best football players of all time. In 1999, he was voted Football Player of the Century by the IFFHS International Federation of Football History and Statistics. In 1999, the International Olympic Committee named Pelé the "Athlete of the Century". Throughout his career, he scored 760 official goals, 541 in league championships, making him the top scorer of all time. In total, Pelé scored 1281 goals in 1363 games. After the 1972 season (his 17th with Santos), Pelé retired from Brazilian club football although he continued to occasionally suit up for Santos in official competitive matches. Two years later, he came out of semi-retirement to sign with the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League (NASL) for the 1975 season and played for three seasons, winning the Championship in the 1977 season. In the rear hanging from the collar is the Umbro manufacturer’s flag tag reading “100% NYLON” “TO FIT SIZE OS MEN” and “MADE IN ENGLAND”. On the reverse side of this flag tag is the washing instructions. On the left chest is the Cosmo’s team logo patch screen printed on. On the right chest, the back, and on the right sleeve is the player number “10”. Across the back is the player name “PELE” sewn directly into the jersey. All numbering and lettering is done in green tackle twill. This jersey is style matched perfectly to a game from the 1977 season. This jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows outstanding use.
1977 Pelé New York Cosmos Match-Worn Jersey (Gifted To His Teammate • Alfredo Lamas LOP • Perfect Style Match With Heavy Use • Championship Season)
