The Brazilian National Soccer Team became the first national side to win three World Cup titles with a definitive 4-1 victory over fellow two-time winners Italy at Estadio Azteca to close out the 1970 FIFA World Cup. Led by the attacking talents of Pele, Jairzinho, Tostao, and Rivellino, the Selecao went undefeated in their six World Cup games under manager Mario Zagallo. The inimitable Pele opened the scoring in the final match, with Gerson, Jairzinho, and Carlos Alberto rounding out the scoring in Mexico City. After winning the Jules Rimet Trophy for the third time, the CONMEBOL nation became the permanent holders of the trophy and the iconic silverware was officially retired. This Brazil team is widely acknowledged as the greatest international side of all-time after winning three World Cup titles in a 12-year period.

Offered in this lot is a Jules Rimet staff winner’s medal originally presented to Brazilian Football Confederation President Ricardo Teixeira. This offered medal features a stunning high-relief etching of the Greek goddess Nike on the front, with “F.I.F.A.” and two soccer balls etched around the centerpiece. The reverse side of the metal is etched in high-relief with “Campeonato Mundial De Futbol Copa Jules Rimet” and “Mexico 1970” around a high-relief etching of a laurel wreath. This historically significant medal comes with a LOA from CBF employee Alexandre Silva da Silveira.
