After declaring bankruptcy last year and sparking a lot of bad press and investigations by the state of Rhode Island, former Boston Red Sox pitcher, Curt Schilling, will be putting a bloody sock he wore in a World Series game up for auction as collateral for debts.
In a document filed with the Massachusetts secretary of state's office, there were a number of items listed as collateral for the millions of dollars in unpaid loans which he had guaranteed for his now defunct business, 38 Studios, best known for its work on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. The items included a bloody sock he wore during the 2004 World Series game, a collection of World War II items, and a baseball cap worn by Lou Gehrig.
Bidding for the items will begin on February 4th online, and live bidding will take place on February 23rd in New York City. Given how much money people are willing to pay for strange items from celebrities, it will be interesting to see how much cash his bloody sock will net in the auction.
