During the event, Martinez apparently had said that the World Cup finals were not played every day and this made the gloves special. However, it would be helping a child much more than Martinez himself hanging them in some frame in his house.

The Argentinian Pediatric Foundation announced the auction and Martinez’s action on Instagram and posted with a caption saying, “$45,000 for the Dibu gloves to help the Garrahan boys!”

Inside the gloves, there was the signed autograph of Martinez upon the announcement of the particular donation of the “golden gloves” of the Argentinian keeper back in February.
