We've seen a monster book on Manchester United, now to add to the collection of luxury sports books that includes a book on Muhammad Ali, comes this massive tome dedicated to iconic star Pele. The book weighs over 25 pounds and is the first book from Gloria, a luxury publisher. The "carnival" edition of Pele had a £4,000 price tag, but is all sold out. The Super Samba edition sells for £2,000 and is a limited edition of 250 that includes a Pele photograph signed by the photographer. The Samba version without the photo sells for £1,600. Both versions are covered in green silk. Each book in the total series of 2,500 has been signed by Pele.
