Lionel Messi has teamed up with BossLogic to launch his own collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), crypto art that will go on sale on Saturday morning.

Messi, 34, is portrayed as a king, superhero and Greek titan in works entitled “Man from the Future,” “Worth the Weight,” and “The King Piece” that celebrate his career highlights.

Australia-based BossLogic is known for his work with Marvel Studios and Disney.

“Art is like football. Eternal,” Messi said on his Twitter account in early August announcing the launch.

Works in the collection titled “Messiverse” will be available for purchase on the Ethernity Chain platform, known for producing original NFT pieces for sportstars.

BossLogic said depicting Messi had been “a huge honour” in a post on Twitter in which he shared the “Man from the Future” artwork, which shows an image of Messi from behind, with the number 30 jersey that he will wear at his new club, Qatari-owned Paris St Germain (PSG).
