Lionel Messi: Solid Gold Foot Statue Will Only Set You Back $5.25 Million

Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka has created a solid gold statue of Lionel Messi’s left foot. Weighing in at 55 pounds, the statue is worth about $5.25 million. It comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Lionel Messi Foundation, lest you think they swapped the cast for some mere mortal’s foot.

Personally, we’re save our prodigious blogging coin for the 100-pound gold bust of David Beckham’s pelvic area in a pair of briefs. Bidding is going to be steep.
