Pelé’s World Cup Winner’s Medal, 1962

Péle played in two of Brazil's matches at the 1962 World Cup in Chile, but was in injured in the game against Czechoslovakia. It was the first major injury of his career, and it forced him to sit out the rest of the World Cup. Despite his loss, Brazil retained the cup, and Pelé claimed a second winner's medal.
