Abel Lafleur Base, France 1930, with Replica Trophy

The original World Cup trophy was created by the French sculptor Abel Lafleur in 1930. Its base, shown here, was replaced by a larger one after the 1954 finales. The trophy was given to Brazil in 1970 after their third World Cup win, but was stolen in 1983.

CHALLENGE 4-STAR

The Challenge 4-Star was made from 25 strips of leather, most of them long and rectangular. No other World Cup ball had used so many different pieces. The ball was made in three colors - white, yellow, and orange - so that it would be clearly visible in any weather and pitch condition.
