The sock, worn in Game 2 of the 2004 World Series will be available for online bidding around Feb. 4. One has to imagine it smells pretty bad.
This is not to be confused with Schilling’s other blood sock – the one he wore in Game 6 of that year’s American League Championship Series and found its way into a Yankee Stadium trash can.
Chris Ivy, director for the firm selling the hosiery, is expecting big things.
He said the sock is expected to fetch at least $100,000, though he described that as a conservative estimate.
“I do expect the bidding to be very spirited,” Ivy said.
Any money is good money for Schilling. His video game company filed for bankruptcy in June and owes up to $100 million related to the deal. Maybe he can bleed on some more shit and sell it. It’s a hell of a business model.
