Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is having an estate sale this weekend to raise money to pay back creditors.
Schilling’s video game company, 38 Studios, defaulted on loans from the state of Rhode Island, and he has been selling off assets ever since. The former pitcher lost all the money he earned over his baseball career, and his investment in the company was said to be around $50 million. The state of Rhode Island’s economic development agency is suing him for the money owed to the state. Rhode Island lured Schilling to the state by promising a $75 million loan in 2010. Schilling’s company defaulted on the loan after going bankrupt.
So, for those living in the Boston area, you can hit up 7 Woodridge Road in Medfield, Mass. on Saturday to pick up some items from Schilling’s home. When I say they are clearing everything out of the home, I mean they are clearing out everything.
Consignworks is handling the estate sale and has listed all of the potential items for sale on their website. Items include everything from beach towels, DVDs, bobbleheads, and a drum set to candlesticks, chairs, tables and a microwave. He even has a standup Ms. Pacman video arcade game, which is pretty sweet, and a Hummer golf cart.
