The Original World Cup Trophy.
The Jules Rimet Cup (originally named for the World Cup's
founding father) had an eventful history, beginning with a tenure hidden in a box under a bed during World War II. It was stolen in 1966 while on display in England. With the help of a small dog named Pickles, the famed English detectives of Scotland Yard were able to retrieve the Trophy which was hidden in a suburban garden.
In 1983, the Trophy was again stolen in Rio de Janeiro, never to be seen again. It is widely believed that it was melted down by thieves.
