When the final whistle goes on a Barcelona game, the opponents often search out Lionel Messi in an attempt to barter for the shirt on his back. It’s an honor to be selected by Messi to swap.

Little do we thing of the shirt going in the other direction.

Now, with the swift click of a camera shutter plus a social media post, Messi has given us a look into his monstrous kit collection. It’s pretty incredible.

The room filled with jerseys includes big names including Francesco Totti, Yaya Toure, and David Luiz plus current and former teammates Luis Suarez, Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Pique, and Dani Alves, It’s no shock that there are a host of Real Madrid kits, including Iker Casillas, Angel Di Maria, and others. Notably, his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo does not appear.

Unsurprisingly, in the center is the back of his own Barcelona kit plus the front of an Argentina shirt.

This room is a magical kingdom of soccer kits present and past. Geek out at your own risk. How many names and teams can you recognize?
