How Much Would You Pay For a Bloody Sock?
We will find out how much a bloody sock is worth in February as Curt Schilling will sell his sock from the 2004 World Series. That was the year the Boston Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals to win their first title in almost 90 years. In that series Curt Schilling pitched game 2 nursing an injury to his ankle. During the game he bled on his sock which caused the sports casters to go crazy about the effort he was putting out, but really he an easy night of it as the Cardinals where swinging like monkeys at the zoo.
The sock has been on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and is expected to bring in about $100,000. That’s good for Schilling as he is broke; yes I know it sounds crazy but Curt Schilling’s video game company based in Providence has collapsed and he needs the cash. It’s a shame he didn’t keep the bloody sock from the ALCS that year as well.
As a kid from St. Louis and a lifelong member of Cardinal Nation I wouldn’t pay anything for his sock, but if you’re a Red Sox kind of person then you might want to check this out.
