There’s a Football Memorabilia auction coming up at Christies, packed full of classic football shirts, but none more cool than Pele’s New York Cosmos shirt, signed by the man himself.

It’s an authentic item – worn by Pele and gained by Paolo Ammoniaci as a swap after the 1977 Cosmos v Lazio challenge match. The white and green short-sleeved shirt features a printed Cosmos badge, with the name "Pele" and the number 10 on the reverse.

But you’ll need plenty of spare cash to bid for it – the estimate is between £700 and £1,000. If you’ve got that money to spare, surely a worthy investment. The auction takes place on 3rd April 2007 at the London South Kensington auction rooms.
