Last year, during the World Cup in Qatar, I was blessed to find these Adidas mini boots in Brazil, autographed by the players of the 1958 Brazilian team.

There are two signatures that I haven't formally identified.

These mini boots belonged to Mário Zagallo, the legendary player and coach, who autographed the boots along with the other players of the 1958 Selection. He gave them to Heloísa Helena (1939-1999), famous Brazilian actress of the time, during the big party for his 20th birthday in Rio de Janeiro, in 1959. The party took place at the Botafogo club, of which Heloísa and Zagallo were supporters. She was a close friend of Zagallo and Júlio Mazzei, coach and manager, who brought Pelé to the New York Cosmos.

Heloísa Helena started her career in the late 1950s, and became known for her performance in films such as "A Hora e a Vez de Augusto Matraga" (1965) and "O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro" (1969). , both directed by Glauber Rocha.

I got in touch with the Adidas museum in Germany, who explained to me that these mini boots were unique as they were a prototype made by the Adidas shoemakers, assigned to the Brazilian team for the 1958 World Cup, who then made the boots to measure. for each player. In addition, they are signed by players that many experts consider to be part of the best football team of all time. It was even one of Pelé's first autographs (aged 17). Anyway, something that I consider absolutely exceptional and unique.
