The Ultimate Souvenir—Messi's Game-Worn World Cup Jersey


New York Times - "It’s the World Cup Souvenir Everyone Wants. Getting One Is the Hard Part."
By Rory Smith

"Claiming his jersey from a World Cup final, of course, would be the ultimate souvenir for any of the France players fortunate enough — or savvy enough — to land it. The odds, though, may not be in their favor. Pride of place in Messi’s own collection appears to belong to the jersey he wore in his first World Cup final, in 2014. Some things may be so significant, so collectible, so treasured, that even Messi wants them for himself."
