This 1957 Pele sticker comes from the 1957 Album issued by Americana Ltda. This sticker is incredibly rare to find due to the fact that these stickers used to be exchanged for rewards or prizes. This removed many of these stickers off of the streets.

This sticker is also considered by many to be the best rookie given that Americana Ltda. was one of if not the most prestigious publishers of this era for Brazilian albums. Americana's albums have a strong lineage as they started publishing sets annually from 1939 onwards.
