The Incredible 1959 Heinerle - BGS 8

This listing is for a card of unlimited potential. At present, it is only held back by awareness within the general public as only the most savvy collectors know of it. It's current price is supported by this small informed group.

To date, only a handful of these German made gems exist and only one has attained the elite grade of Near Mint by the most critical grader in the business, Beckett (BGS/BVG). This card is simply unbelievable when you consider that it is over 40 Years old. The subgrades are Centering 9.5, Corners 7.5, Edges 8.5, and Surface 8. It's already the highest grade ever for this card.

It's hard to imagine a card with more explosive potential than this rookie card of one of the most famous athletes of all-time. Pele stands ahead of even the most popular of athletes. Other cards attempt to lay claim to being Pele's rookie card but they are either made of thin magazine paper or grossly oversized. This is Pele's rookie and a real trading card with size and stock that resembles a regular card. This card also precedes Pele's popular 1966 Italian "rookie" which is often sold for huge dollars and was made years later. That's a fantastic card and a great investment but there's no comparing this card with others as far as rarity and card quality.



One must wonder what it will take for this card to be known among the general public as other legendary cards are? Will it be Pele's death and the inevitable rush into his autographs and short printed items? Maybe. It happened with auto racing's most popular driver and he wasn't anywhere near as popular as Pele is. Right now, the card is held back only by it's rarity, there just aren't enough available to build awareness. But there is this beautiful BGS 8 at a price that only begins to reflect it's potential compared to other less rare cards of famous athletes. You are unlikely to see another like this.



*** The Pele Rookie Card. The Holy Grail of Soccer Cards!!! ***
