Far be it from us to tell collectors what is valuable and what isn't — we wouldn't trade our Willie McGee 1987 Topps card for the Shroud of Turin — but we have to say, we're pretty surprised by one of the top items on MLB.com right now.
In an auction ending at midnight tonight, you can buy an actual game-worn sock, sweated in and God-knows-what-else by former Red Sox shortstop Orlando Cabrera. It has also been autographed, which brings up the obvious question: How does one autograph a sock?
The starting bid was $195, and one bidder, "18judd," has stepped up and bid. Just 10 hours left, though. Get your bids in fast and furious.
