Curt Schilling currently finds himself being sued by Rhode Island’s economic development agency because of a failed video game company and in the need of money. You may recall that Schilling was able to auction off his infamous bloody sock for a cool $92,613. But he still needs money.
So on Saturday, there will be an estate sale held at Schilling’s home in Boston where everything from furniture to a Hummer golf cart will be sold. All in the name of making Schilling some money that he could eventually fork over in the lawsuit.
Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling — whose video game company collapsed into bankruptcy last year, prompting a high-profile lawsuit in Rhode Island — is selling off furniture, sports collectibles and even artificial plants from his Massachusetts home.
An estate sale company has scheduled a sale of items from Schilling’s seven-bedroom, 8,000-square-foot Medfield residence for Saturday. Among the items listed on Cosignworks Inc.’s website are sofas, porch rockers, candlesticks, a baby grand piano, a punching bag, a Hummer golf cart, a baseball glove chair and a vintage Coca-Cola vending machine.
