The Pittsburgh Steelers and Lelands are auctioning off more memorabilia from the team archives, including game-worn jerseys sported by Pro Football Hall of Fame players Lynn Swann, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Mel Blount and Rod Woodson.

The Steelers collection contains 28 items, including cleats and a chinstrap worn by Hines Ward during the 2002 season, a vintage jersey/sneaker trunk and sideline jackets. It is part of the Lelands Spring 2019 Classic Auction.

Another item up for auction is a 1992-93 game-worn hockey jersey by Mario Lemieux.

The auction opened Wednesday and runs through June 7.

Ten jerseys are among the “best of the best” items in the Steelers collection. They were worn by Swann in 1978, Bradshaw in 1980, Harris in 1981, Lambert in 1982, Blount in 1976, Ham in the 1977 AFC playoffs and Woodson in 1993. Others in the “best of the best” category are a 1971 jersey worn by Rocky Bleier and 1979 jerseys worn by Steel Curtain members Dwight White and L.C. Greenwood.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction of Steelers memorabilia will be donated to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research.

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.
