Curt Schilling Out Of Schillings, Sells 2nd Most Valuable Bloody Sock, But Not “The Sock”

Sensing an opportunity to make some cash, former major leaguer Curt Schilling is auctioning the second-most famous sock of his career, a bloody one worn on his right foot when he pitched Game 2 of the 2004 World Series for the Boston Red Sox. It’s a tremendous piece of memorabilia that has been in the Baseball Hall of Fame for years. The blood, produced from a sutured tendon in his foot, symbolized the fight for the Boston Red Sox to finally win a title for the first time in 86 years.The sock could draw bids above $1 million.

As Deadspin nobly points out, it’s not THE SOCK ™, the one Schilling wore when he pitched against the New York Yankees in the ALCS during Boston’s historic comeback. “The Sock” was thrown away.
