LONDON (AP) — Pele’s replica of the Jules Rimet Trophy, the original World Cup, has sold at auction in London for 394,000 pounds ($570,00)
The Brazil great was given the copy of the World Cup after becoming the only player to win the tournament three times.
Pele, a World Cup winner in 1958, 1962 and 1970, is auctioning his entire collection of awards and memorabilia.
Pele is also selling old passports and his 1970-1972 document sold for 9,500 pounds — more than four times the initial estimate.
