Pelé in 1960

Pelé listens to his favourite albums at home on a day he didn't have to work. Agostinho dos Santos' 'Inimitável', 'Convite para ouvir Maysa no.4' and 'Nelson Gonçalves in Hi-Fi' are among others.

The head-line reads 'Pelé, the millionaire' but he was living at a boarding house owned by Raimundo, former Santos basket-ball player, his 17-year old brother Zoca (Jair Nascimento) and 'Porunguinha' (José Carlos) a 3-year old boy ('related to Pelé' according to the text) with no parents. Pelé's father, Dondinho, lived in Baurú-SP and controlled his son's finances.
