82 years is pretty good regardless. One of the greats

Truly a player that transcended the game. Pele will be remembered 100 years from now. And if humanity still exists, 1000 years from now. RIP to the King

Deserves his own thread.

The first international superstar in this sport.

A "larger than life" figure, possibly the greatest of all time and will forever be the benchmark.

77 goals in 92 Brazil caps

3 World Cups (could have been 4 if 1966 wasn't rigged with 2 English refs ruining Brazil's games)
2 Copa Libertadores
6 Brazilian leagues
And note that Pelé started playing before these tournaments came to existence!

643 goals in 659 games for Santos

775 goals in 840 official games in his career

More than just a scorer, he was the first to do most things we see from football players now. And more than just a player, as he had several appearances in movies as well.
