Default question about Swedish Rekord Pele RC

Relatively speaking this card is quite inexpensive , or so it appears to me. Is this because 1) it's so plentiful, 2) it's a two player card, 3) it has Pele's name wrong, or 4) something else?

I think reason number one is that its hand cut while Pel has several pack issued rookie cards.

I guess I had looked past that in light of the Hemmets Clay where hand cut doesn't seem to matter, but there I suppose there is no alternative.

Yeah...if there were multiple pack issued Clays from 1960 Im sure the Hemmets would be an afterthought.

because when uncut it has Garrincha as his partner on the uncut card... are you kidding me.... a Pele Rookie AND a top 20 player a couple years into his career on the same card.... WOW.... undervalued and underappreciated... I do not like the individual card of Pele, but the uncut double is nice in my opinion....

I think it's a nice looking card although the wrong full name is a drawback. I can't decide whether to get one in order to have a Pele RC, or put down more serious $$$$ towards an Alifa.

Default rekord Pele

These may be factors:

1. It is cut from a publication (cut card)
2. It comes from Sweden, rather than from Brazil which superseded the 1958 World Cup.
3. The names are not the traditional nicknames - Garrincha /Pele

However, the fact that:
1. this card has two superstars on it is worthy must have in any soccer collection.

2. It displays better than some of the tiny Brazil issues.

"Pele" is on the card -- but they have the full name wrong.

If you like how it looks, then go for it. But Id go for the Alfa (or the Aquarela as a cheaper alternative).

Thanks. Don't like the perforations, so I think it's down to a choice between two, the Quigol is a bit beyond what I want to spend at this time.
