TIME Magazine, April 12, 1963, p. 55:

"Pay-lay!"
    Most Americans have never heard of him. But in Moscow, Pelé is a popular hero... In Madrid, his name ranks with Ordóñez and Dominguin, and the next time he is in London, he will be presented to the Queen. He gets 200 letters a week from all over the world, many addressed simply "Pelé"-- with no country. Back home in Brazil, he is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, and ambitious politicians are forever trying to shake his hand in front of photographers. He is the biggest star of the world's biggest spectator sport-- soccer-- and he is only 22.

    Day to Himself. Last week, 150,000 screaming fans jammed Rio de Janeiro's cavernous Maracanã Stadium to watch Pelé's team, the Santos Futebol Clube, champions of Brazil, defend their national title against Rio's hard-running Botafogo club. It was no contest. The lithe, handsome Pelé had the day to himself, stealing the ball, caroming pinpoint passes off the top of his head, foot-dribbling around Botafogo defenders as if they were rooted in concrete. Santos ran up a quick three-goal lead. Then, while delirious fans shouted "Pay-lay! Pay-lay!", Pelé personally administered the crusher: he hammered in two more goals to make the final score 5-0.

    Son of a smalltime pro soccer player known as Dondinho, Pelé was expelled from the fourth grade for cutting classes to play in barefoot futebol games... At eleven, Pelé was spotted by ex-Player Waldemar de Brito, who taught him the games intricacies, and got him a contract with Santos. The first time he played, Santos won, 6-1, and Pelé scored four goals; within a year Santos was the sensation of Brazil. The team now has won the Brazil Cup two years running, and with Pelé on the squad, Brazil's national team has won the last two world championships.

    Kicks & Tugs. Nobody ever has found a way to stop Pelé-- short of mayhem. Desperate opponents trip him, tug at his jersey, aim vicious kicks at his shins and groin. The tactics rarely work...

    Today, Pelé's mere prescence in the Santos line-up ensures a sellout crowd anywhere in the soccer world. His income from salary, bonuses and extras will come to about $40,000 this year. He can have more, any time he wants it. Last year Milan's Internazionale offered him a $60,000 bonus to sign a contract, and another Italian team, Juventus, was willing to go as high as $300,000. Spain's Real Madrid told Pelé to set his own price. Pelé turned them all down.

    ..."I live for soccer, only for soccer," says Pelé. "I have no time for anything else."
