Curt Schilling’s ‘Bloody Sock’ is Going on the Auction Block
What can you say about Curt Schilling? Excellent pitcher and he helped the Red Sox win their first World Series in 86 years. He’s an alright commentator, but as for being a video game entrepreneur, lets say maybe he should stick to baseball. I along with the rest of the Moose staff saw Schilling get his 200th win against the Rays back in May of 2006. He had a terrific career in both the National and American Leagues and someday most likely, he’ll be elected to the Hall of Fame.
Let’s go back to 2004 and talk about Schillings health. The question was, would Curt Shilling pitch in game six in the ALCS against the Yankees? We all remember he did and pitched with a bad ankle and the now famous ‘bloody sock.’ Until now that sock has been on display in a museum. Recently, that sock was used as collateral for Shilling’s now bankrupt ‘Studio 38’ video game company. It is now being auctioned off to the highest bidder. Heritage Auctions says it should fetch at least $100,000.
Even if I collected sport memorabilia, I don’t think I’d pay much, if anything, for the sock. Now, if we’re talking about Schilling’s ring, I’d be all over that. What is the most you’d pay for the ‘bloody sock?’
