Description

Listing my 2nd and last of these, as the other one sold. This is from March 1961, it's UNCUT as iot was when issued. An original Pele & Brazil triple issued with VICTOR COMIC (by DC Thomson) for the Sportsmans Wallet collection, "Famous Teams in Football History". Most were cut to singles to place in the plastic wallet given by Victor comic. It's so rare to find one uncut, like this, in an intact state as it was in early 1961. Relatively clean front & back, just a couple of very light corner knocks atop, and a tiny blunt corner at the bottom. There is a form of ripple across the card in various places, seemingly from the original printing drum. It appears in the same place twice per team. On the Brazil part of the triple card it appears in the sky above the players heads and at their feet, on the other two teams it appears in similar places. It's not a crease, or series of creases, ecause it's the same over, 6 times, it's more like a print drum's mark. It feels very slightly raised but  is insignificant in the opinion of this seller because it is seen only against the light and itìs very faint. HOWEVER the buyer acknowledges this by buying and buys it with these slight issues SOLD AS SEEN
