A Brazil football shirt prepared for legendary player Pelé ahead of his last international is estimated to sell for up to £30 000 (R638 000) at auction.
It was one of two number 10 jerseys made for Brazil’s game in 1971 against Yugoslavia, Hansons Auctioneers said.
Pelé did not wear it in the match and gave it to the team’s masseur instead.
The shirt was later purchased by a restaurant manager in Shropshire in the UK who said he hoped it would end up in a football museum.
The 33-year-old seller, who did not want to reveal his identity, said he bought it from a private collector in 2020.
Pelé died last month. He was the only player to win the World Cup three times and was named Fifa’s Player of the Century in 2000.
The long-sleeved garment was prepared alongside a short-sleeved version, with the latter being worn in the game, Hansons said.
It added that after the match, Pelé gave the unworn one to masseur Abilio Jose de Silva, nicknamed Nocaute Jack, who worked with the national team from the late 1960s to 1994, a World Cup-winning year for Brazil.
Pelé is credited with scoring a world record 1 281 goals in 1 363 appearances during a 21-year career, including 77 goals in 92 matches for his country.
