09:05 PM ET 01.17 | It's been an interesting decade for former pitcher Curt Schilling. He won a World Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001 and went on to help bring the first World Series to Boston since the Curse of the Bambino began. But recently Schilling has run into some financial problems and to fix it, he'll be selling one of his bloody socks. Sorry, the definitive bloody sock. The blood-soaked sock that Schilling wore during the 2004 World Series has become a part of Red Sox lore, and now Red Sox fans can own it. However, any baseball fan lusting after the literal red sock will have to pay a pretty penny to get it. Chris Ivy, director of sports for Texas-based Heritage Auctions, says that he expects the sock to fetch up to $100,000 in an auction.

The sock is more valuable shoved in Schilling's fat mouth.

Who is going to buy a sock? As memorabilia goes, I'd rather have a signed bat or ball.

I wonder if he had to cut himself and smear a little blood on it for authenticity before he turned it over to the auction house?

There are tests that can determine the age of the blood. I would like to think such a test would be part of the authentication process, at very least.

Even if you are the high bidder you might not get the sock, because his creditors could be waiting to cash in on your money. How can a company like ESPN with their high standards put up with this kind of nonsense.

January 18, 2013  08:38 PM ET

I can't even imagine what it must smell like.

So sad that such a wonderful human being has to endure such hard times. He surely got hosed.
