Pelé, Banks and Kluivert merchandise up for grabs

Pelé, Banks and Kluivert merchandise up for grabs

Jul 02, 2018

The World Cup is in full flow and EACH is hoping to score a big fundraising boost by auctioning merchandise signed by Pelé, Gordon Banks and Patrick Kluivert.

EACH has a photo of Brazil’s and arguably the world’s greatest ever player wearing his famous number 10 jersey, signed by the man himself. Pelé was named FIFA co-Player of the Century in 1999 and remains the only footballer to win three World Cups, in 1958, ’62 and ’70. He is now a global ambassador for football and a range of humanitarian causes.

Among teams beaten by Pelé’s Brazil in 1970 were England. It was a classic encounter in which Gordon Banks pulled off a stunning save from a perfect Pelé header - and EACH also has a photo of that moment, signed by Banks, available to bid on.

In addition, the charity has a yellow England goalkeeper shirt signed by Banks, who spent most of his club career with Leicester City and Stoke City.

The fourth and final item EACH has on offer is a Barcelona shirt signed by Patrick Kluivert. Kluivert is a former Dutch player who scored 123 goals in 259 appearances for the Catalan giants. He also had a spell in the Premier League with Newcastle United.

Specialist auction company Sellebrity is supporting EACH by hosting the auctions on its website at www.sellebrity.org.uk/live-auctions. They all end at 7pm this Thursday (5 July).

Money raised will help EACH continue caring for hundreds of children with life-threatening conditions across the region and supporting their families. For more information visit www.each.org.uk.
