Lionel Messi is getting a signed Stephen Curry jersey

Thursday December 3rd, 2015

What do you get for hitting an astronomical 30 million followers on Instagram? If Lionel Messi is any indicator, you get a signed Stephen Curry jersey along with a personal invite to stop by a Warriors game.

The reigning MVP used his own Instagram account, which has a comparatively scant 5.9 million followers, to offer congratulations to the Barcelona star, along with a signed No. 30 Curry jersey.

Congrats @leomessi on 30 million!

Messi also celebrated the accomplishment with his own No. 30 jersey, which was the number he wore in his first appearance with Barcelona.

The Argentine also showed off his Curry jersey as soon as he received it.

An autographed jersey and a personalized message from Steph Curry seems like pretty good motivation to step up your Instagram game, or at least to get out there and buy a bunch of bot followers.
