An authentic shirt worn by ‘O Rei’
Pelé bossed rivals on the pitch wearing the mythical Santos shirt between the 50’s and the 70’s. This legend of the game only played with his beloved Santos in Brazil, and now you have the chance to grab your hands on the original shirts he wore throughout his stint at the club.
Athleta was the original brand supplying the kits of the Brazilian National Team that won the World Cups of 1958, 1962 and 1970 – it is still the only brand in the world that has supplied the kits to a 3 World Cup winning team. And amongst many teams in Brazil, South America and North America (does NY Cosmos ring the bell to you?), Santos was also endorsed by Athleta.
This was the first shirt Pelé wore at Santos. This 1956 Santos shirt is not a retro shirt. It is exactly the same original shirt Pele wore back then – both in design, materials, badges and marks used. Numbers and badge are sown in this 100% cotton shirt, which keeps the same details from the 50’s so you can exactly feel and see what Pele wore. On top of everything else, the shirt comes with a collectible card (see gallery) that guarantees the originality of this item.
Homefans has partnered up with Athleta to offer you a uniquely curated range of original shirts around the life of O Rei.
