NEW YORK, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- A sock bloodied by Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in Game 2 of the 2004 World Series sold for $92,613 at a New York auction.

Chris Ivy, director of Sports Auctions for Heritage Auctions, said Pete Siegal won the auction Saturday at the Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion in New York with a high bid of $92,613, CNN reported Monday.

"It's a one-of-a-kind item," Ivy said. "I expected anywhere from $75,000 to many multiples of that. It's the first bloody sock we've sold, and it came in just under what we expected to get for it. I'm happy with the sale."

The sock was stained with Schilling's blood when he played the game with an injured ankle, just days after undergoing surgery.
