PELE DECIDES TO AUCTION ALL HIS TROPHIES AND MEDALS.
The great Brazilian footballer Pele, whose real name was Edison Nascimento Arantes , but was given the pet name Pele. As the story goes when he Pele was a young boy, the Brazilian club Vasco Da Gama , had a goalkeeper called Bile, and Pele always pronounced it as Pele instead of Bile, and so the name has stuck for good. Now Pele has now decided to put up his three world cup medals,the ball with which he scored goal number 1000, one thousand only.That historical goal was scored by Pele, for his club Santos vs Vasco Da Gama. After all he is the only footballer in the world to score over a thousand goals in his career. Even the replica of the Jules Rimet trophy, after he won the the third world cup for Brazil in 1970. The auction is expected to get a lot of money, much more than what was said at first.
