A Lionel Messi Game-Used #10 Argentina National Team Home Shirt from the 2018 FIFA CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers. On the final day of qualifying, Messi scored a hat-trick in a must-win match versus Ecuador to send Argentina to the 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia. This particular garment was worn during a CONMEBOL qualifier versus Colombia, and was worn for at least 1 half of play. This garment is an original piece of team equipment and was worn on the field of play during match play by Lionel Messi. Upon close inspection, you will come to find the following signs of use throughout this item: The garment is presumed to have remained unwashed. The garment was likely worn by Messi for one half of play only, as he changes into a fresh top at half-time on most occasions. There are some light markings throughout. No heavy markings or stains are evident. The garment possessed a slight odor when it arrived, which has since subsided as the shirt was hung to prevent mold. Obvious signs of use, with no noticeable structural damage.
