Boston fans, behold: Curt Schilling is selling his bloody sock.
Well, not the bloody sock. That one was thrown away after Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS.
No, Schilling is selling another bloody sock, one that some people did not know existed.
Schilling wore the second bloody sock during Game 2 of the 2004 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Like he did against the Yankees, Schilling had to have his ankle stabilized in order to pitch that night at Fenway Park. And so Schilling's ankle bled while he was on the mound against the Cardinals.
This sock was not thrown away, rather it was placed somewhere much more meaningful than a garbage can: the Baseball Hall of Fame.
And now Schilling, who lost $50 million on a failed video game company last year, is selling the sock. Bidding will begin on Feb. 4 and last until Feb. 23.
Chris Ivy, the director of sports for Heritage Auctions, told the Associated Press he expects the bidding to be "very spirited" and the sock could sell for at least $100,000.
In May 2012 Heritage Auctions sold the "Bill Buckner ball," the baseball which rolled through the Red Sox's first baseman's legs, for $418,000.
