Red Sox ^Update: Curt Schilling’s bloody sock goes for $92,613 at auction

Curt Schilling’s bloody sock goes up for auction

Own a piece of history! And then do DNA testing on it to see if the conspiracy theorists were right and it was really just Karo syrup!
Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is selling the blood-stained sock he wore during the 2004 World Series after the collapse of his Providence-based video game company. The sports director at Heritage Auctions tells The Associated Press online bidding begins around Feb. 4. Live bidding will take place in New York City on Feb. 23.

The sock had been on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s now at Heritage’s Dallas headquarters and is expected to bring in at least $100,000.
Schilling listed the sock as collateral in his company’s bankruptcy filing back in October. Schilling also recently put his 26-acre, 20-room home in Massachusetts on the market. The dude is obviously in trouble.

BBWAA, please: put this man in the Hall of Fame so he can charge more for his autograph at card shows and stuff. Help a brother out, will ya?

It would almost be worth it, so I could burn it in my personal fireplace.

I have no sympathy for Athletes when they have to sell their crap, I know 3 year olds who are more responsible with their money than these fools

Why bother? I could just smear ketchup on a sock of my own.

In all seriousness though, I'd much rather have a baseball from the World Series, ALCS, or something along those lines regardless of value.

Now, I think anyone who knows me knows how much this pains me, but I'll have to give Schilling some credit here. Some guys go bankrupt just by being stupid and greedy. Schilling went bankrupt because he managed his money terribly in the process of creating, what people who like those types of games, claim is an incredible video game.

At least his money went to good use.
