Every now again, we get a telephone call at our Ice HQ that gets the PSD Ice Art Creative Team VERY excited.
This happened recently when we became the ecstatic recipients of an exclusive invitation to attend ‘An Evening With Pelé’ in London on Wednesday 1st June, as part of his 3 day tour of the UK.
Pelé really is without a doubt considered every football fans’ dream player, so you can imagine our delight when we were asked to create not one, but two Jules Rimet World Cup Trophy Ice Sculptures for his special evening.
You may have read in the news recently that the Brazilian footballer offered his entire collection of awards and football memorabilia up for sale. Every single one of more than 2,000 items was purchased by fans and collectors. The biggest selling item of the auction was the replica World Cup Trophy, which he received after becoming the only player to win the FIFA World Cup on three occasions. Pelé also donated a significant proportion of his collection to the City of Santos, where he first started playing for Santos FC as a fifteen year old boy.
