The Red Hot Chili Peppers are offering fans the ultimate Super Bowl souvenir: the drum set and drum sticks that Chad Smith will be playing during the halftime show at the big game this weekend.

The drum kit, a custom-built "limited edition" Pearl set with Sabian cymbals, will be broken into two sets: an AFC one and an NFC one.  They'll both be sold off at NFLAuction.com to raise money for Make-A-Wish, which helps children with life-threatening medical conditions.  Both sets will feature their respective teams' logos.

In addition, three pairs of autographed drum sticks will also be for sale, including the pair that Smith will use during halftime, and two pairs from rehearsals.  The Chili Peppers will be joining headliner Bruno Mars for the halftime show.

The drum sets and the sticks are available for bid right now via NFL Auction through February 7th.  The Super Bowl airs live on Fox February 2, from Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
