This post isn't about the auction, I don't care about that. I want to know what why I am now hearing that the Schilling sock that was in the Hall of Fame and the sock that did the whole "US tour", wasn't the real sock at all. Drew Silva of Hardball Talk had his piece HERE writing about the auction that took place for Curt Schilling's sock. But the sock WASN'T the sock that was worn in the 2004 ALCS, it was the sock worn in Game 2 of the World Series against the Cardinals.
The alternate sock sold for $92,613.
It goes back to my theory that that stupid sock was nothing more than a publicity stunt soaked in ketchup. Sure, maybe I'm wrong... but I doubt it.
