    Description

    1958-59 Tupinamba Ltda. Coleção Quigol Pele #109 PSA NM-MT 8. While the sport of soccer continues to struggle for equality here in the States, it enjoys unrivaled supremacy in the world beyond our shores, veering close to religion in the nation of Brazil, arguably the game's greatest global superpower with a record five World Cup Championships. And in that long and illustrious history of world dominance, one name rises above all others: Pele.

    He was just seventeen years old when he scored twice in the 1958 World Cup Final to defeat Sweden on their home field in Stockholm, exhibiting such peerless artistry that opposing player Sigvard Parling later commented, "When Pelé scored the fifth goal in that Final, I have to be honest and say I felt like applauding." Despite the teenage superstar's skyrocketing fame, only a small sampling of these Brazilian-issue trading cards are known to exist today.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. The entire PSA population stands at twenty-five, with none superior to this offering. The vast majority of these cards were either pasted into albums or victimized by the fragile nature of their thin paper construction. As the collectibles marketplace continues its own global expansion, there's every reason to believe that soccer cards will ride the crest of that wave. Certainly Pele will continue to occupy his position at the top of that hierarchy as long as the game is played.
