Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Curt Schilling baseball cards and memorabilia have fairly broad appeal. Having won World Series Championships with both the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox, he is particularly popular with collectors of those teams. Additionally, as a long time member of the Philadelphia Phillies, fans and collectors there hold him in high regard as well.

Schilling has just one rookie card, 1989 Donruss. However, he does have a team-issued postcard from that year as well that is considered a short-print. Due to the lack of additional Curt Schilling rookie cards, collectors also gravitate towards his minor league checklist, which includes:

Curt Schilling's first autograph cards were included as part of the 1996 Leaf Signature Series set. His autograph has Bronze, Silver and Gold versions. 2000 Ultra Feel the Game is the first Curt Schilling memorabilia card.

Curt Schilling is the subject of one of the most unique items in sports memorabilia history. In Game 2 of the 2004 World Series, a suture from an ankle injury burst. This left his socks visibly bleeding. Schilling toughed it out and went on to give up just one run over six innings. The bloody socks Schilling wore that game sold at auction in 2013 for $92,613.

What's more interesting about the story is that it wasn't even the truly famous sock people associate with the story. The sock that sold was actually the second of two. The other was stained when Schilling pitched during Game 6 of the 2004 AL Championship series against the New York Yankees. That sock is said to have been thrown away at Yankee Stadium.

With regards to Curt Schilling's autograph memorabilia, single signed baseballs are the most popular item to have signed. Programs, yearbooks and other material associated with any of his three World Series Championships are also popular with collectors. Schilling is a willing in-person signer and occasionally appears at larger sports collectibles conventions and events.

Schilling's card was double-printed during production. As a result, the card is even more abundant than other cards in the set, which had one of the largest print runs ever in the hobby. On the plus side, collectors can find mint copies for a dollar or less. On the negative side, that's about all they will ever be worth.

Curt Schilling Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Curt Schilling signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. A very short signature consisting of just a few characters.
  2. The over-sized "C" is clearly legible, the letters "u-r" are implied.
  3. The "t" can have one of two looks. There is the cross as it appears above. Sometimes, though, the "t" makes more of a loop, like you'd see on a cursive "l." An example of this can be seen on the ball pictured below.
  4. The "S" is also over-sized and clearly legible.
  5. The only other character of the last name is a large lower case "g" that intersects the "S" and often is not closed on the top portion of the letter.
