Flea, Chad Smith, Anthony Kiedis, and Josh Klinghoffer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers perform during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show at MetLife Stadium on February 2, 2014 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Now you can own a piece of Super Bowl 2014 history -- one that actually might have a little wear and tear to it.

According to (via Rolling Stone), Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith is auctioning off the drumset he used during the band's performance of "Give It Away" at the Super Bowl halftime show last weekend. The kit is available in two pieces -- one side representing the NFC; the other, the AFC. 

Three separate pairs of drumsticks -- two rehearsal sticks and one from the performance -- will also be auctioned.

Proceeds from the sets will benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation, granting wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses and medical conditions.

Bids on the drumsticks currently range from $295 to $610, while the AFC and NFC kits are fetching $12,575 and $10,025, respectively.

Bidding ends Friday (Feb. 7) at 10 p,m. ET.

Smith played the kits during the band's Super Bowl performance with Bruno Mars. The band came under fire earlier in the week when it was noticed that Flea's bass was not plugged in. The bassist later admitted in a statement that the music -- save for the vocals -- was pre-recorded.
