This is possibly something that could sell for up to one million dollars,” said Nolan.Pele’s three World Cup medals are expected to fetch up to $200,000, while the ball with which he scored his 1,000th goal is expected to sell for $40,000-$60,000. The player’s 1977 New York Cosmos NASL championship ring, 2004 Summer Olympics Torch Relay and L’Equipe Athlete of the Century award are also for sale.
Yet the most humble and precious item of all, if it can be verified, may be a makeshift soccer ball made of rolled-up socks that the pre-teen Pele kicked around the streets of Bauru.”We have softballs stitched up in canvas but we haven’t definitively established yet that we have that first ball. If that ball was to exist it would be phenomenal,” said Nolan.
