Schilling To Auction Off Sacred 'Bloody Sock'

The Grail
Apparently due to his recent financial troubles, Curt Schilling is auctioning off the hallowed 'bloody sock' he wore during the historic 2004 season. While the first bloody sock he wore in Game 6 of the ALCS against the Evil Empire was thrown away in Yankee Stadium, the sock to go up for bid is from Game 2 of the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Schilling's video gaming firm, 38 Studios, went bankrupt in 2012 and he has faced numerous lawsuits—including by the State of Rhode Island. The auction house thinks the sock can fetch at least $100,000.
