    1958 Bremer Fachring Kaffee Pele Rookie Futball - Welt. - Ser. 4 #12 PSA EX-MT 6--Finest Known! Another trading card featuring 1958 World Cup Champion and all-time greatest soccer player Pele from the German coffee company "Bremer Kaffee." This one finds a soaring seventeen-year old legend denied a header by the fist of the opposing Swedish goalkeeper Kalle Svennsson in the World Cup Final, but Pele would get two past him in Brazil's five to two victory.

    Just five examples of this card appear in the PSA population report, and this EX-MT 6 example is a full four grade levels superior to its next closest competitor. Even then, we can't help but consider the assessment of this gorgeous rarity to be quite conservative, as the corners are sharp, the image well-registered and balanced perfectly between its white borders. As the finest known example of a rookie card of the most celebrated athlete of the twentieth century, this is a card with unlimited investment potential.

    After World War II, Germany had been broken up into military zones, and Bremer Kaffee (coffee) was only sold in and around the city of Bremen, which was in the British zone of West Germany, so Bremer trading cards were only available to approximately one quarter of what is now unified Germany. That's a very small circulation. Further complicating distribution was the fact that Bremer cards were not issued with the coffee. One had to collect tokens from packets and redeem them for the cards. Since there are sixty cards in the set, your odds of getting this Pele card were rather slim. That's why the Bremer Kaffee Pele rookie cards are so rare.
