Lelands has formed a partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers to serve as the team’s official auction house of game-worn jerseys and memorabilia. The first official auction- “The Pittsburgh Steelers Archive of Exceptional Jerseys” – went live on Wednesday and will run until March 17. It’s part of a larger auction of memorabilia in Lelands’ 2017 Winter Auction.
Among the game-worn jerseys in the inaugural sale is a 1977 Terry Bradshaw road jersey worn in a divisional playoff game against Denver (current bid $12,100) and a Franco Harris road shirt from a late-season game against the Broncos in 1978 (current bid $11,000).
Portions of the proceeds from the sale of Steelers Archive Jerseys will be donated to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research, which was launched last November and supports continued research and education regarding brain injuries and treatment of sports-related concussions.
Other jerseys available for auction online at Lelands.com and via catalog include those worn by:
- Hall of Fame defensive back Mel Blount
- Hall of Fame cornerback Rod Woodson
- Defensive ends L.C. Greenwood and Dwight White
- Running back Rocky Bleier
- Tight end Heath Miller
- Wide receiver Hines Ward
Each jersey available for auction includes a full description, and several have been photo-matched to a specific game and individual performance in team history.
All items will come with a letter of authenticity from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Lelands.
“The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the most storied franchises in all of sport, and their game-worn jerseys are the NFL’s rarest and most desirable,” said Lelands founder and chairman Joshua Evans. “We are honored to partner with the Steelers and to offer up for auction ‘The Pittsburgh Steelers Archive of Exceptional Jerseys.”
