Bids reach $60k for Curt Schilling’s bloody sock

PROVIDENCE — Bidding is under way for the bloody sock worn by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in the 2004 World Series, which he put up for sale after the high-profile collapse of his video game company.

The auction house has estimated the sock will go for at least $100,000.

Live bidding will take place in New York City on Saturday.

The sock was stained when Schilling pitched — despite an injured ankle — during the second game of the World Series, which the Sox went on to win.

Schilling recently pledged the sock as collateral for bank loans for his video game company, 38 Studios, which ran out of money and closed in 2012.
