Baku, May 31 AZERTAC
The Brazil legend is selling off a huge collection of his treasured items including his own replica of the Jules Rimet trophy and the ball he scored his 1000th goal with.
Football fans wanting to grab a slice of sporting history are in for a treat next month as Pele punts his most treasured mementos.
The 75-year-old Brazil legend is to auction off all the memorabilia he has accumulated in a lifetime in the game.
As well as iconic items such as his three World Cup winner's medals and the boots he scored his 1000th goal with there is also a vast collection of objects presented to him over the years to mark his achievements from crowns and ceremonial daggers to model ships, clocks and freedom-of-the-city keys.
A proportion of the money raised over three days at the London auction will go the Pequeno Principe paediatric hospital in Brazil with the sale set to raise £3.5m.
