NEW YORK (AP) — A bloody sock worn by Curt Schilling while pitching for the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of the 2004 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals was sold for $92,613 at a live auction on Saturday night at the Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion.

Schilling had loaned his sock to the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum but when his Rhode Island-based video game company “38 Studios” went bankrupt, he decided to sell the sock that was bloodied as he pitched on an injured ankle.

Bidding began at $25,000 on Monday. Texas-based Heritage Auctions anticipated it would get more than $100,000.

Schilling helped end Boston’s 86-year championship drought — the “Curse of the Bambino” — by pitching on an ankle that had been sutured more than once through the postseason.
