In June of 1975, Pelé assisted on one goal and scored another on a header to help lead his New York Cosmos team to a comeback draw against the Dallas Tornado.

Pro Soccer's triumphs and tribulations have been well documented over the years. Much has been made about Pele's contribution and how he influenced the game's growth in the 1970's.

It was 35 years ago today that The Black Pearl made his NASL debut for the New York Cosmos. Pele assisted on one goal and scored the other in a 2-2 friendly draw with the Dallas Tornado at Downing Stadium on Randalls Island in New York.
