According to the Daily Mail, Messi’s 2022 World Cup jersey collection will be auctioned at Sotheby’s in New York and is expected to fetch more than $9.9 million.
Among these shirts will be the one Messi wore on the field in the final against France. That match ended in a 3-3 draw, and in the penalty shootout the Argentines were stronger 4-2.
Last fall, the sales record for sports uniforms was broken. Then, the jersey of legendary Chicago Bulls basketball player Michael Jordan, with which he entered the court in the first game of the final series against the Utah Jazz in 1998, was auctioned for $10.1 million.
