Lelands is excited to announce 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 of game-worn Steelers jerseys with Lelands - "The Pittsburgh Steelers Archive of Exceptional Jerseys" - will run from February 15, 2017 until March 17, 2017.
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.
Game-worn jerseys available for auction online at Lelands.com and via catalog include Steelers Hall of Famers and legends:
- Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw

- 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.'"
