Exclusive Opportunity: Bid on Lionel Messi’s Match-Worn World Cup 2022 Jerseys for Charity

The best player in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Lionel Messi, will have six of his jerseys from the title-winning run auctioned off in December. Sotheby estimates the value of these jerseys to be 10 million US dollars. Messi wore these shirts during the group-stage rounds against Saudi Arabia and Mexico, as well as later games against Australia, the Netherlands, and Croatia, and the final against France. Argentina’s victory in Qatar marked Messi’s first World Cup win after four previous attempts. If the jerseys indeed fetch above $10 million, the sale would be the most valuable collection of sports memorabilia ever auctioned off. The most expensive individual jersey ever sold at auction was one that basketball legend Michael Jordan wore during his NBA finals run, which sold for $10.1 million last year. The auction is being organized by US tech startup AC Momento, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the UNICAS Project, which helps children with rare diseases. The jerseys will be available for free public viewing from November 30 to December 14 before the auction takes place. This collection represents Messi’s historic performance in leading Argentina to their third World Cup title.
