PROVIDENCE — Items once owned by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s failed video game company have been sold off at the first of two auctions.
Computers, speaker systems, and even a pool table that formerly belonged to Rhode Island-based 38 Studios were on the auction block Tuesday in Timonium, Md. The Maryland auction site was the former headquarters of Big Huge Games, which 38 Studios acquired 2009.
A second auction is planned next week at the firm’s former Providence headquarters. Rhode Island lured the company from Massachusetts with a $75 million loan guarantee. It filed for bankruptcy in June.
Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee has said he’s not expecting the auctions to make much of a dent in what the state stands to lose.
38 Studios receiver Richard Land said he had no immediate tally on how much had been raised.
