This rare find can only be discovered in the American version of the 2024 Panini CONMEBOL Copa America sticker packets and boxes. Panini has introduced color parallels to their Copa America product for the first time, with the black border parallel numbered “One of One” being the most elusive of them all.

Collectors and fans alike will need to act fast, as the bounty is only valid through the end of the 2024 calendar year.

To claim the $25,000 prize, the Messi #ARG19 Black 1/1 sticker must grade a PSA 6 or higher.

“As with most collectibles, especially cards/stickers, condition is important. This Messi #ARG19 black 1/1 sticker must grade a PSA 6 or higher,” writes GameStop.

In May, GameStop announced they will be accepting PSA-graded 8 cards or higher and will pay a maximum of $500 in cash or in-store credit. Essentially, don’t go down there with a 1952 Mickey Mantle thinking you will make some quick cash.

As of now, the company will only be accepting cards graded by PSA.

In Fiscal Year 2023, collectibles accrued $754 million in net sales, which was over 14 percent of GameStop’s total sales.
