Pelé is considered to be the most important football player of all time and has often been referred to as “Soccer’s National Treasure.” The three-time World Cup Champion, FIFA Player of the Century (1999) and Brazilian Football legend became a superstar with his performance in the 1958 World Cup. He holds the record as the youngest player to ever play in, and score in, a World Cup Final and holds the Guinness World Record for goals scored in a career with 1,283.

The exhibition offers the public a chance to view his vast collection of memorabilia, awards, personal property and iconic items from his entire career for the first time ever. It covers every stage of his career, both personal and professional. The collection offers a story of sorts from his signing with Santos FC in 1956 at the age of 15 all the way through his post-career humanitarian efforts and being named Santos FC’s Lifetime Global Ambassador for the club in December 2014.

The collection of over 2,000 items will also be featured in a three-day auction after the exhibtion, through Julien’s Auctions
