Pele Edson Arantes

Soccer - 1967 Panini Calciatori

Pelé (born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, October 21, 1940-December 29, 2022) is known worldwide as one of the greatest football (soccer) players in history, and was named the Football Player of the Century in 1999 by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS). Growing up in poverty stricken Bauru, Sao Paulo, Brazil in the 1940s and 1950s, Pelé was the son of professional footballer Dondinho who taught him the fundamentals of the game using either a sock stuffed with newspaper or a grapefruit. The use of the smaller ball helped develop Pelé’s ball handling skills far beyond those of his contemporaries. Coaches recognized Pele’s abilities at an early age and he signed with the professional club Santos Futebol Clube at 15, was the league’s leading scorer and scored his first World Cup goal at the age of 16. Pelé was heralded as the next great superstar of the game of football, but then became the greatest star the game has ever seem as he scored 1,281 goals in 1,363 games. He spent his professional career playing for Santos (1956-1974) and the New York Cosmos (1975-1977). His ball handling skills and dribbling abilities were unmatched during his era and he familiarized the world with the rare and spectacular bicycle kick.

Pelé led the Brazilian national team to four World Cup, winning in 1958, 1962 and 1970, as he became the only footballer in history to lead his team to three World Cup victories. Along with his World Cup titles, Pelé helped lead his Santos club to titles in the Copa Libertadores (1962, 1963), ten Campeonato Paulista titles, five Taca Brasil titles and two Intercontinental Cups, among others. German superstar Franz Beckenbauer described Pele as “the greatest player of all time”… with “no one to compare with Pelé.” In 1975, Pelé was coaxed out of retirement to join the New York Cosmos of the fledgling North American Soccer League (NASL) and led them to the 1977 title despite being well past his prime. He is credited for popularizing the worldwide game in the United States, where baseball football and basketball dominated popular sports. Pelé remains a goodwill ambassador for Brazil as well as the game of soccer and is considered a national treasure. He was instrumental in helping Rio de Janeiro, Brazil attract the 2016 Olympic Games.
