Curt Schilling to Sell Bloody Sock

Former Boston Red Sox pitcher and 38 Studios founder Curt Schilling will sell the famous bloody sock that he wore during the 2004 World Series. The sock is expected to net at least $100,000. The Associated Press is reporting that an online auction for the piece of rare sports memorabilia will open on February 4, with an in-person auction to be held on February 23. Curt Schilling's other prized possession, a cap that was worn by legendary baseball player Lou Gehrig, will also be auctioned.

The sale of the sock is part of an ongoing effort by Schilling to pay down debt related to the bankruptcy of his Rhode Island-based studio and the $75 million loan his company received from the state of Rhode Island. Schilling invested $50 million of his personal fortune into the company as well.

    In a hospital setting where the patient's condition may not be known and the blood may be exposed to any number of contaminants yes. In a situation like this, where the blood is dry, the owner of the blood and anyone else who may have come in contact with the blood while it was liquid can be confirmed to have no blood borne illness no.
