Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ jersey set a record when it sold for $9 million in 2022 as the most expensive game-used football shirt.

Eight-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi made World Cup history by being the first player to score in every single tournament round—the group stage, round of 16, semifinals, and championship.

Sotheby’s said: “A portion of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to Unicas Project, led by Sant Joan de Deu Barcelona Children’s Hospital with the support of the Leo Messi Foundation, to meet the needs of children suffering from rare diseases.”
