A portion of the auction house’s Classic Auction Winter 2019 collection are 32 Steelers-related items, headed by the Swann jersey and a 2000 game-worn jersey by Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis.

The auction began this week and concludes Feb. 1 on

The Swann jersey already has gotten a high bid of $13,310. The Bettis jersey, which he wore in at least four games during the 2000 season, has a $4,287 high bid.

Among the other items up for auction are a 2016 James Harrison bumblebee jersey ($2,928 bid), a 2001 Kordell Stewart jersey ($2,200 bid) and a 2005 James Farrior jersey ($1,832 bid).

Some of the proceeds from the sale of apparel from the Steelers archive will be donated to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Research.

Among the items that have not received bids are apparel once worn by Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. A Bell jersey from the 2013 season that was worn when he scored his first NFL touchdown hasn’t received a $5,000 opening bid. A 2015 practice jersey worn by Bell also hasn’t received a $300 opening bid. A helmet from 2014 that Brown wore in training camp also has not generated a $500 opening bid.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
