Time is running out for Pittsburgh Steelers memorabilia collectors to bid on game-worn jerseys sported by some of their favorite players.

A spring collection of memorabilia at lelands.com that features 30 Steelers-related items has a Friday deadline at 10 p.m. for collectors to submit bids. The auction began May 7.

The Steelers have participated in several auctions on the Lelands web site, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research.

Ten game-worn jerseys are part of the “Best of the Best” collection that has attracted the most interest from collectors. A jersey from 1978 worn by Lynn Swann and others from 1981 by Franco Harris and 1982 by Jack Lambert each have attracted $17,716 bids as of Wednesday afternoon. A 1989 Terry Bradshaw game-worn jersey has fetched a high bid of $16,105, and a 1976 Mel Blount jersey has reached $12,968 in bidding.

Eight of the 10 items in the “Best of the Best” collection have gotten bids of at least $10,000, including a 1977 jersey worn by Jack Ham in an AFC playoff game ($11,789).

Among items in the rest of the spring collection, a 1976 Donnie Shell jersey has a high bid of $7,780. Other items include cleats and a chin strap worn by Hines Ward in 2002, a 1960s vintage sideline jacket, an equipment trunk and a Super Bowl XXX watch.
