Schilling’s Sock Expected To Bring At Least $100k At Auction

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ 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’s 38 Studios was lured to Rhode Island from Massachusetts with a $75 million loan guarantee, and it later filed for bankruptcy.

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