Watched a lot of his footage when I was growing up. Highlight reels, full matches, etc. Still, the best and most complete player to ever grace the game.
Almost every skill you can think of, Pele did it first. Chest passes, no-look passes, Cruijff turns, rabona's, juggling the ball over players' heads, backheels, dummies, chips, fake shots, paused penalty run-ups, la croqueta, elastico, magical dribbles, you name it, he did it.
A common fallacy is that he didn't play in a strong league, but Brazilians largely played in Brazil during his era. Very few played outside of the country, so it was in fact one of the toughest leagues in the world.
