People collect some strange things and from time to time, those same people will pay a lot of money for those items. Saturday night was one of those occasions. Heritage Auctions held an event Saturday night which featured the bloody sock that Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling wore in Game 2 of the 2004 St. Louis Cardinals. The auction featured several sports related items but perhaps the bloody sock was one of the strangest. Schilling had donated the sock to the Baseball Hall of Fame but was forced to sell the item in an auction after losing his baseball earnings in a failed business venture. Schilling’s sock wasn’t the only part of Red Sox history that hit the auction block, the famous ball that rolled between Bill Buckner’s legs was sold. It was originally thought the ball would bring $100,000 but ultimately wound up fetching $418,000. I guess it’s just the idea that someone would plunk down $92,000 for a sock with a blood stain on it sort of creeps me out just a bit. That, and the fact that someone paid $92 grand for one sock with a small blood stain on it. Now that you have it, what do you do with it? Bring it out at dinner parties? Put it in a case and stick it on your desk? I guess people with a lot of disposable income will buy just about anything.   The post Curt Schilling’s bloody sock sells for $92,000.
