Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s head of modern collectibles Stated:

“The 2022 FIFA World Cup stands as one of the greatest events in sports history, intrinsically connected to Messi’s valiant journey and firmly establishing his status as the greatest player of all time.”

In the beginning of this month, Messi earned the title of Time magazine’s “Athlete of the Year” for 2023. This recognition comes after an exceptional season, during which he secured his eighth Ballon d’Or award and made a groundbreaking transition to Major League Soccer’s Inter Miami. Messi, at the age of 36, debuted for Miami in July, following a contentious departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

The champion of the World Cup declined a lucrative offer to join Saudi Arabia, opting instead for a fresh start in MLS. The recipient of the Ballon d’Or eight times, he quickly made a significant contribution to Miami’s success, playing a crucial role in their victory in the expanded Leagues Cup—a competition that includes teams from both MLS and Mexico’s premier league.
