What Would You Pay for a Peice of Red Sox History?

Any Red Sox fan knows the story of Curt Schilling's bloody sock.  Now, that bloody sock could be your's.  With Curt's Connecticut based going under, Schilling is forced to sell his bloody sock to recouperate some of his losses.  This is actually the second bloody sock, because the first one was thrown away, so this one is from game 2 of the World Series.

The sock is being sold by Heritage Auctions, and is expected to raise more than $100,000.  Some bidders may be turned off because it is the second sock, but it is still a peice of Red Sox history.  Personally, I hope whoever buys it will display it in the Hall of Fame because it belongs there where everyone can enjoy it.  Obviously its not up to me, but I have seen it before and I'm sure future generations would love to see it too.  So, if you had the money how much would you pay for the famous "bloody sock"?
