Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is a framed photo montage of Lionel Messi, with Messi's signature in black permanent marker on a photo within the upper left quadrant of the piece. The frame measures 107cm x 83cm. The piece was sold by a company called Wonderland Memorabilia, who certified the piece to be authentic. Unfortunately, this certification does not pass scrutiny as would third-party authentication such as that from PSA/DNA or Beckett Authentication Services, which would more definitively establish the signature as authentic.
According to the current owner, the piece was acquired at auction. Condition of the autograph and photo appears excellent. Specimens considered in establishing this value include Messi-signed non-game worn and non-sportscard pieces that sold recently, one via Heritage Auctions on March 10, 2019 for $504 along with a piece on February 15, 2020 that sold via Heritage Auctions for $396.00. In consideration of the factors noted, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece if authenticated by a reputable third party would be estimated at $400 to $500 US.
