Club career

Born in Buenos Aires, Raffo started his playing career with Club Atlético Platense in Argentina. In 1952 he moved to Ecuador to play for Argentina de Quito (now Deportivo Quito). In 1954 he joined Emelec where he would play many seasons, scoring 132 goals. In his later years he played for Everest and 9 de Octubre.

Raffo is considered to be one of the greatest goalscorers in the history of the Ecuadorian football, but the precise number of goals he scored will probably never be known, due to poor record keeping in the early 1950s.
