Schilling must part with ‘bloody sock’ to pay loans

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is selling the “bloody sock” he wore during the 2004 World Series to help pay off millions in loans he cosigned to finance his failed Rhode Island video game company.

The bloodstained sock, which had been on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., until late December, is scheduled to be auctioned by Heritage Auctions in New York City on Feb. 23. The auctioneer estimated that the sock will fetch more than $100,000, but said it is hard to put a precise value on such an unusual item.
