Default If you are into soccer cards...

IMO.... you have to get a Pele rookie.

All are fine. If I had to get one (taking into account current pricing - mainly the huge premium for the Quigol at the moment), I would likely go with the Alfia...

Here are my reasons:

1. It is cardboard
2. It was issued concurrently with his World Cup debut (which was amazing in Sweden)
3. It is affordable (compared with the Quigol)
4. All the other issues have "issues" (thin paper stock, magazine cut, perforations)
5. It is attractive (to me at least)
6. The premium that the Quigol has is mostly due to the fact that most people think that it is the most attractive of the Pele rookies. I am pretty certain, however, that this was not issued in 1958, thus it is an attractive second year (at best) card. Can it still be the "best" Pele card. Absolutely - just see the Mantle 1951 Bowman vs. 1952 Topps. But this is the main reason that I am avoiding Pele Quigol cards right now.

I have one Pele card in my display case and it is the Alfia card. But, collect what you like.

Al thanks helpful analysis and I was leaning that way already. Of course deciding to buy one and finding one in the right grade at the right price are two different things.

I hate this Swedish Rekord card. What I see here is a European man's attempt to draw a dude of African descent (and he failed). Take another good look at that card - does it even look like Pele?

And I agree that the Alifabolaget is a beautiful card.

Thereís a PSA 1 up right now at auction and I recently upgraded my PSA 2 so I have that one available.

Yuppp. Thatís another difference from the Clay - the latterís portrait is quite attractive

The Alfa is just a stunning card. Much sharper image than that of any 50ís Topps set.

I think a 5 or so is where I am headed but thank you.
