For Sale: 1961-62 WS-Verlag Wanne-Eickel Vintage Soccer Card of Brazilian great Didi
Didi was a Brazilian footballer who could play as a midfielder or as a forward. He played in three FIFA World Cups 1954, 1958, and 1962, winning the latter two and was awarded the Golden Ball, given to the tournament’s best player, for his performance at the 1958 competition.
A dead-ball specialist, he became famous for inventing the folha seca (dry leaf) free kicks, notably used by modern-day players such as Ronaldinho and Juninho, where the ball would swerve downward unexpectedly at a point resulting in a goal.
Fantastic vintage find in very high grade with sharp corners, edges and bold font & photo registration.
