Now, the folks at GottaHaveRockAndRoll.comtell us they've secured the authentic game used jersey -- which features a signature from Maradona himself.
We're told the consigner is the family of a famous Argentine journalist who received the jersey as a gift from Argentina manager César Luis Menotti after the team returned from the 1982 World Cup in Spain.
The family has kept it for decades -- but now with interest in Maradona collectibles soaring in the wake of the soccer legend's death, they felt the time was right to sell.
We're told the signed Maradona jersey comes with a letter from the journalist's family spelling out the chain of possession behind the item. It's also been certified by the famous JSA authentication company.
