    1959 Heinerle Pele Rookie PSA EX-MT+ 6.5. Many would argue that the two greatest soccer nations on the planet are Brazil and Germany, and this supremely rare card connects the two powerhouse countries as the Europeans celebrate the best of South America. The image derives from Brazil's 1958 World Cup victory in Sweden a year earlier. This German cardboard commemorative survives in marvelous condition--we should note that the apparent discoloration on the back of the card is actually silhouettes of athletes at play. We suspect that it is only light corner wear that accounts for the rating as listed. Out of just over one hundred submissions to PSA, this fine specimen has been topped just four times.

    As the trading card hobby has seen enormous advancements outside the borders of the United States over the past twelve months, smart investors are taking a much closer look at commemoratives of the world's most famous athlete, and the supply is positively microscopic compared to the rapidly swelling demand. Many top hobby prognosticators are reassessing this new global landscape, growing increasingly convinced that this long-overlooked segment of the marketplace is set to explode.
