Any guesses where this one will end up?

Can someone clarify this for me? The listing refers to the bloody sock worn by Schilling in game 2 of the World Series, but the "bloody sock" game was game 6 against the Yankees. So this is a different sock?

Different sock. There were two socks. Schilling threw away the first sock from the game against the Yankees.

This is referenced in the write up.

Wow this guy is dumb. First he throws away a valuable SOCK, then goes bankrupt starting a video game company. Now he has to sell what I would imagine is one of his most cherished possessions.

I would hope that a sock doesn't rank very far up his list of "most cherished possessions", especially since it is not "the" sock.

This isn't even the real bloody sock. When you think of Curt and his bloody sock, it's the game against the yankees not the world series. I think it would be funny to test his blood for steroids.

Yeah, he doesn't sound too bright, but he's got Lenny Dykstra beat:D. At least Curt isn't headed to prison.

Well, I said one of in front of most.

This Sock is symbolic, not just of the playoff series, but of his colossal effort. It shows his BLOOD, sweat and tears. A tangible item representing his past feat. I'm sure if he wasn't in financial trouble it would still be in his possession.

My thought is this is disgusting. Who would want a bloody sock even if it is Shilling's? Kind of like owning Barry Bond's jock strap. Guess different people spend their money in different ways.

I remember in a Mastro auction in the late 1990s a bar owner auctioned a wooden leg that had belonged to Bill Veeck. I don't know who would buy such a thing.

A one-legged fan of Eddie Gaedel?:D

I reworded my original note to quote you better, while retaining my point.

"this" sock is actually "a" sock that makes us think about "the" sock.

As a collector, I wouldn't want to have an item on display in my house which would cause amazed exclamations from many who saw it as they remember seeing "that sock on tv!", to which I would have to respond "Well, it's not actually THAT sock"

To each his own when it comes to collectibles, I just hope whoever buys it gets it graded by a reputable third party.

I wonder what Buckner's sh*t stained underwear would have went for?

You know some rich Yankee fan would have hung some $100,000 poopy underwear on their wall.

this is absurd. its not even "the" sock". it's worthless as far as i'm concerned.

As this isnt "THE SOCK" but a sock, um with blood on it, showing the "heart" if you will of shilling who played through it. AND IMO most impt, this was Bostons 1st WS win in 86 years, this was the one that broke the babes curse.

On the other hand, I would not be hanging a stinky bloody sock on a wall anywhere in my home, rofl. BUT im not a Red sox fan. I think a fan would pay for it though, a guess $1000.

Im not a big time collector like alot of you guys here but if your not a sox fan would you display this next to all your other cool awesome stuff??

My only opinion on the subject is I can't stand Curt Schilling. Opinionated loud mouth jocks who tell you who you should vote for on talk shows have never been my cup of tea.

That's not to say that's the only type of athlete I can't stand. In anticipation of T.O.'s bloody sock at auction, I can say that prima donna, team cancers, have their own reality shows athletes might beat of Curt Schilling.

I have a longer list and will post it later today. I need time to type it up . . . Let's see, anyone associated with the Yankees and the Cowboys. Oh yeah, and the Bears. Anyone who appears in a commercial with Hulk Hogan. Communists of course. Any baseball player who wears his bill tilted to the side. Anyone who's middle name starts with an M. Any NHL player dumb enough to try and jump into the stands after a goal. Any NHL player. Any NFL player who owns a Winger album.
