    Hurry, Curt Schilling’s bloody sock up for auction

    Hurry, Curt Schilling’s bloody sock up for auction

    Disgusting.

    And probably will sell for a lot, because it’s history.

    From ProJo:

    Bidding is under way for the bloody sock worn by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in the 2004 World Series, which he put up for sale after the collapse of his Providence-based video game company.

    The sports director at Heritage Auctions says the highest bid so far is $32,500. Live bidding is taking place in New York City.

    The sock had been on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s expected to fetch at least $100,000.

    Schilling’s 38 Studios was lured to Rhode Island from Massachusetts with a $75 million loan guarantee. It later filed for bankruptcy.

    Schilling also guaranteed loans for the business. The state also is now likely responsible for some $100 million related to the deal.

    Can’t the LI community band together and buy it communaly as an investment to be resold at a hefty profit in the near future?
