British auction house Bonhams just released the above announcement on January 31.

Messi’s signing tissue was signed in December 2000, when Carles Rexach (then Barca’s sporting director) agreed with Jorge Messi, Messi’s father, and agent Horacio Gaggioli, to sign the teenage Argentine – Lionel Messi. He became a football superstar and the club’s all-time leading scorer.

The historic moment in world football happened after Barca’s sporting director – Rexach invited Jorge Messi to lunch because Rexach was worried about not receiving a response from his father, after Messi’s first trials at the Spanish club.
