The 11 Best Things For Sale At Curt Schilling's Bankruptcy Auction

Curt Schilling is being sued by the state of Rhode Island as a result of that whole video game company going bankrupt and defaulting on $75 million in loans thing. In an attempt to satisfy his creditors, Schilling's putting the contents of his Medfield home up for estate auction, enabling you (or somebody else) to buy his crap for pennies on the dollar!

And what crap there is. The listing features all manner of furniture, sundries, and home decor, but we're gonna focus on stuff you'd actually want. We narrowed it down to eleven lots we endorse for your bidding.

1. A Fake Plant

The auction description notes that sadly, Schilling's bloody sock is not for sale. (It went separately for $92,000.) But you can get something equally ersatz! This fake fern in Lot #2 will go perfectly in your foyer or dorm room, and unlike certain Rhode Island-based video game companies, it won't die as a result of neglect or mismanagement.

2. A Pile Of Crap

Lot #38 is a pile of Curt Schilling's crap. Just look at what you could buy! A combination lock to which you do not possess the combination! A deck of playing cards that he apparently received as the shittiest birthday gift ever! A Phiten necklace, the efficacy of which is as disreputable as Curt Schilling's business decisions! USB CABLES!

3. A Hummer Golf Cart

Art Deco? More like Art DECOY, with this hot-pink tannenbaum that doubles as an in-a-pinch traffic cone for your toddler's Barbie Power Wheels car. Or use it as an enormous buttplug and do to yourself what Schilling's company did to Rhode Island taxpayers.
