BRAZILIAN SOCCER LEGEND, PELE, SAYING:
"My friends, please join me as we raise money to fight COVID-19 in Brazil. Please, help us."
Brazilian soccer legend Pele is raising money for relief efforts
through an auction of high-profile sports memorabilia
organized by the foundation he created in 2018 - Pelegacy
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND CFO OF JULIEN'S AUCTIONS, MARTIN NOLAN, SAYING:
“And you'll see Pele talking about these items and gathering up these jerseys - a jersey signed by Ronaldo. Of course his friend Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain a 21 or 22-year-old kid, 'Prince' and of course he's really friendly with Pele, the 'King', and so that's a great bond. And he's donated. Franco Harris from the NFL has donated."
Pele is offering some of his own items for the September auction
including a gold-plated bronze cast of his own foot
and a number of signed shirts
PELE: "These amazing shirts from Pelegacy will be part of the auction. Good luck. (flash) And keep the ball rolling!”
