British goalkeeper Gordon Banks made was might be categorized as the best save in World Cup history (certainly amongst the most famous) on a header from Pele in Mexico in 1970. That moment is captured with this huge 53x42 canvas signed by both men (both "9-10"). It shows Pele prematurely placing his hands in the air in celebration of a goal that never was, while Banks dives out to his right and deflects the ball over the crossbar in stunning color. Auction LOA from JSA.
