Proudly offered here is just the second PSA 10 graded Catalonian 2004-05 Panini Mega Cracks Barca Accio #62 Lionel Messi action rookie card in existence. While Messi's most iconic rookie card is unquestionably the 2004-05 Panina Mega Cracks card #71, valued nearly $20,000 in PSA 10 condition, it is a group of another 2004-05 Panini Mega Cracks issues that has captured the hobby most recently, namely the 2004-05 Barca Champions issue. Designed to commemorate Barca's 2004-05 La Liga and Supercopa Espana championships, Messi can be found on three different cards within the set, one showing a portrait of the 17-year old Argentinian, another showing an action image, and the third showing a facsimile signature. Importantly, all three cards can be found in both Spanish language and Catalonian versions, with the Catalonian cards far outranking the Spanish in terms of both scarcity and condition sensitivity. For whatever reasons, the Catalan cards, especially examples of #62, are often found with detrimental surface indentations even when taken straight out of packs. The offered example is just the second copy to attain PSA's top Gem Mint 10 grade.
