Six World Cup shirts of Lionel Messi go under the hammer: will Michael Jordan’s record be destroyed?


Six shirts worn by Lionel Messi during the World Cup in Qatar will be put on the market in a lot by auction house Sotheby’s in December.

These are jerseys that the captain of the world champions wore during the first half of the group matches against Saudi Arabia and Mexico and then in the knockout phase against Australia, the Netherlands, Croatia and during the final against France.

According to Sotheby’s, the bid may exceed $10 million (9.15 million euros). This would put the record for the most expensive sports object in sight. Today it is a shirt that basketball legend Michael Jordan wore in the 1998 NBA Finals won by the Chicago Bulls. That went under the hammer last year for $10.1 million.

An (unspecified) part of the proceeds is intended for the UNICAS project, an initiative of a hospital in Barcelona that specializes in the treatment of rare diseases in children.
