Record-Breaking Auction: Lionel Messi's World Cup Match Shirts Set for Sale at £8 Million

Lionel Messi's iconic match shirts from the 2022 World Cup, notably worn during Argentina's victory against France in the final match, are scheduled for auction at Sotheby’s in New York. 

The set includes six jerseys, symbolizing pivotal moments such as the final, semi-final against Croatia, and matches against Netherlands, Australia, and three group-stage games.

These jerseys are anticipated to fetch at least $10 million (£8 million), potentially setting a new record for sports memorabilia collections. 

For reference, Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls jersey from the 1998 NBA Finals Game 1 holds the current record, having sold for £8.1 million last year at Sotheby’s New York.

Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s head of modern collectibles, emphasized the significance of this auction, attributing it to Messi's exceptional journey and legacy in football. 

These shirts represent a historical milestone, connecting fans and collectors to Messi's unparalleled achievements and marking an extraordinary moment in auction history.
