6 Jerseys Worn By Lionel Messi During 2022 FIFA World Cup Sold For $7.8 million

Six of the iconic jerseys worn by Argentine superstar Lionel Messi during the 2022 World Cup were sold for $7.8 million at an auction.

The jerseys were worn in Argentina’s group stage matches against Saudi Arabia and Mexico, the knockout round clashes with Australia, Croatia, and the Netherlands, and the final against France. The only jersey missing from the collection is the one from Argentina’s group-stage win over Poland.

Sotheby’s had projected the jerseys would break a record held by Michael Jordan’s 1998 NBA Finals jersey, which sold for a record $10.1 million last year, but they didn’t.

The second most valuable jersey sold at auction was Diego Maradona’s “Hand of God” goal jersey worn during the 1986 World Cup, which sold for $9.28 million in May 2022.
