Ostentatious Trophies Of Our Time – the Ciudad de Buenos Aires

While Pelé may have been able to win games single-handedly, he definitely needed the assistance of his Santos teammates to lift the huge and very grandiose Ciudad de Buenos Aires trophy. This was a 1968 friendly tournament played in the Argentine capital and Santos won it at the expense of local side Boca Juniors and Eusébio’s Benfica.
