The opportunity to purchase guaranteed authentic memorabilia from the Pittsburgh Steelers personal archives does not come around very often, but for those with deep pockets, there is now a rare chance to get your hands on some special items on sale as part of the Leland 2019 Spring Classic Auction.
Established in 1985, Lelands is the world’s first sports memorabilia and card auction house and a noted seller of some famous sports collections. As of Wednesday, they are now taking bids on a number of Steelers game-worn jerseys that were supplied to them from the team’s own collection, as per Auction Report.
The collection includes jerseys worn by many notable players from the teams of the 70’s, as well as iconic names of the 90’s, part of a range of items that includes some vintage sideline attire and a watch commemorating Super Bowl XXX. The full list of lots up for auction can be found here, but these are a few of our favorite items and their current bid price at the time of writing.
