How much would pay for a bloody sock? What if that sock was the one worn by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling?

Update - The sock sold over the weekend for a little less than most thought it would fetch. Many believed that it could get over half a million dollars, but it only brought in a little over $90,000. Bidding began on the sock several weeks ago at $25,000, and quickly climbed but tapered off as the auction wound down.

The now famous bloody sock is up for auction, and some are saying that it could fetch around $500,000 if not more. The ball that Schilling used while pitching in that same World Game went for $100,000 at auction, so it is promising to see how much the actual bloody sock will go for.

Schilling, who pitched for six innings in the 2004 World Series Game 2 on the bad ankle, could hardly walk after the game. It's a moment most Red Sox fans will never forget.
