Report: Schilling May Have To Sell Bloody Sock
BOSTON (CBS) – It appears Curt Schilling is in the market to sell more than just his house.
The Boston Globe first reported the former Red Sox pitcher may be forced to sell the famous “bloody sock” he wore during the 2004 World Series to pay back millions of dollars he was loaned for his failed video game company, 38 Studios.
The sock, worn during Game 3 of the 2004 World Series against he St. Louis Cardinals, was one of the items listed as collateral Schilling recently pledged to lenders. Also listed was a hat worn by New York Yankees great Lou Gehrig along with Schilling’s extensive World War II memorabilia collection.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic Reports:
A sports memorabilia specialist estimated the bloody sock could go for as much as $25,000 if it reaches action, according to the Globe.
The sock, which is on loan to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, is one of two that Schilling wore during the Red Sox’ 2004 title run. The first bloody sock came from Game 6 of the ALCS against the New York Yankees, but Schilling actually threw that one out following the game.
Along with the memorabilia, Schilling has also pledged the proceeds from his investment in a private equity fund, StepStone Capital Partners II Onshore LP. He placed his Medfield mansion on the market earlier this week, listing the house at $3.5 million.
Schilling’s 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy in June after laying off its nearly 400 workers.
