In the first half of the 20th century, no nation on earth had the same success in soccer as Uruguay. La Celeste were the gold medalists in the 1924 and 1928 Olympics, and the winners of the inaugural FIFA World Cup in 1930. Uruguay spent the next two decades on the sidelines but shocked the world to win the 1950 FIFA World Cup against Brazil at the Maracana Stadium. Offered here is a four-paneled album booklet celebrating Uruguay’s four world titles of the early 20th century. Team photographs from all four squads are included, with the World Cup heroes Obdulia Varela and Alcides Ghiggia noted in the photograph from the 1950 Celeste outfit. The trainer for the 1950 Uruguay team, Romero Vasquez, has signed this booklet in black pen, adding an inscription in Spanish and dating the signature to July 25th, 1950, shortly after the “Maracanazo” on July 16th. This item comes with a LOA confirming it is part of the Rony Almeida Soccer Collection.
