For the first time since he and his Argentina compatriots won the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Lionel Messi met with our team to put pen to product at a private and exclusive signing session in Paris.
The official signing took place on January 30th and presented our team with the first opportunity of 2023 to get highly sought-after Argentina shirts signed by the man who led his nation to its third world title.
Messi was on inspired form throughout the tournament in November and December, scoring a whopping seven goals – including a brace in the Final – and earning the adidas Golden Ball as the competition’s best player.
We at Icons watched with immense pride as Messi then lifted the iconic trophy at the Lusail Stadium in Doha following a pulsating Final that will live long in the memory.
Icons Shop Ltd CEO Dan Jamieson, who was at the Final in Qatar to see Messi’s Argentina defeat France, said: “They say when you bet on a game the result means more.
“We went all-in on Leo a long time ago and he pulled off the big one. After all the twists and turns my heart hurt. Even the crowd around us got involved as they wondered why England fans were supporting Argentina so much!”
It’s no wonder that in the ensuing hours, days and weeks we received an overwhelming influx of orders for exclusive Official Messi Signed Merchandise and Official FIFA World Cup Memorabilia from all over the world.
At an undisclosed location in Paris, Messi signed Argentina shirts both home and away, personal dedications, 2022 FIFA World Cup footballs, Adidas boots, artwork and more amazing items for his many adoring fans.
Icons have been working with Messi since the age of 17 and in turn have developed a wonderful relationship with the world’s greatest player. Icons is the only source of authentic Official Messi Signed Merchandise.
Every single piece of Official Messi Signed Merchandise comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) that shows Messi signing one of the items at the session, as well as the date and location of the signing. The COA is created under license by Icons.com.
