This limited-edition shirt, one of only four to be signed by the whole team, commemorates the team brilliantly, as it highlights how rare their achievements are. This was the season of history. Barcelona had just sold off high-profile names such as Deco and Ronaldinho, and there was doubt that the squad would be able to perform without these names. However, in his first season as manager, Pep Guardiola and his team played a season to remember: it was the first Treble in Spanish football history. It was marvellous to watch – Messi had inherited the Number 10 jersey from the departing Ronaldinho, and did wonders in the shirt, scoring 38 goals in all competitions. The striking trio of Messi, Samuel Eto’o and Thierry Henry scored exactly 100 goals between them, another record for the Blaugrana. With this, Barça were simply unstoppable, even beating their largest rivals Real Madrid 6-2, making it one of the most one-sided wins ever in El Clásico. The Catalan side showed true brilliance in the Champions League as well, defeating the likes of Bayern Munich 4-0. They scored some spectacular goals, such as Andrés Iniesta’s last-minute screamer against Chelsea. In the final, Eto’o and Messi were too much to handle for Manchester United, as both grabbed themselves a goal to complete the coveted Treble. Barcelona played some exhilarating football throughout the season, which is why many believe that this squad is one of the best in history, therefore this unique shirt is a true treasure.
