Soccer, according to data from WorldAtlas, is the most popular sport on the planet. No surprise there. However, with its 4 billion fans worldwide, soccer outpaces the second most watched sport, cricket, by 1.5 billion fans. In fact, if you combined the number of baseball, golf and tennis fans, you'd still be about two billion people short of the number who follow association football. This demonstrates the incredible global appeal of this game.

Investors in cardboard commodities, when looking at the increasing worldwide popularity of sports cards coupled with the massive international audience for soccer, have recently taken notice that fútbol cards are incredibly undervalued. When collecting soccer, similar to other sports, elite hobbyists are always looking to buy the best condition cards of the greatest players. It is nearly impossible to top the soccer card offered in this lot, an incredible 1958 Rekord Magazine dual rookie card of Brazilian legends Garrincha and Pelé, graded Mint 9 by Beckett Vintage Grading (BVG). Garrincha was widely considered the preeminent dribbler in soccer history, and Pelé was arguably the game's greatest player and certainly its most famous ambassador. Both these men represented Brazil in the 1958 FIFA World Cup, where they helped their nation defeat host country Sweden in the final, 5-2. The offered card, cut from a Swedish magazine, represents the finest known specimen graded by BVG, and boasts near-perfect centering, four sharp corners, and impeccable color and registration. It is every bit worthy its lofty grade.

We sincerely believe that soccer cards will experience tremendous hobby growth these coming years. Buy now, so you don't regret missing out later.
