Lelands and the Steelers have partnered for the third time in the past year to auction off jerseys worn by Pro Football Hall of Fame players and other former Steelers players from the 1960s through more recent vintage. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research, which was launched in November 2016.

Bidding on began Feb. 14 for the newest collection and concludes at 10 p.m. March 23.

The newest crop of memorabilia features 26 items, with the most popular being jerseys worn by some of the team's Hall of Fame members. The items include a 1984 Jack Lambert jersey, a 1982 Lynn Swann jersey, a 1982 Jack Ham jersey and a 1997 Jerome Bettis jersey. The Lambert and Swann jerseys have high bids of $14,641. Ham's jersey has a high bid of $11,789.

Another popular item has been a game-worn 1975 jersey belonging to Ernie Holmes. It has a high bid of $6,655. The '97 Bettis jersey ranks fifth with a bid of $5,500. A 1993 jersey worn by Hall of Fame center Dermontti Dawson also is available.

Aside from jerseys, the collection includes a 1998 game-worn helmet by Kordell Stewart, equipment and duffel bags used by the Steelers, a black sideline cape and black sideline jackets.

In March 2017, the inaugural group of Steelers memorabilia fetched a combined $327,055 via the auction. In December, a second collection of memorabilia resulted in $48,869 worth of winning bids.
