Sock from Foot Run Over by Brit: Sold!

10/28/2007 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rick's sockHey y'all -- it's gone! The lucky winner is Leo Freedman of memorysuppliers.com, who will receive the tire-tracked sock worn by TMZ cameraman Rick, when Britney Spears ran over his foot in her Pumpkinmobile Benz -- and TMZ is donating the $585 to the Children's Defense Fund, in her honor! Leo said, "Our goal is to support a good cause and make people smile at the same time."

This is the most infamous sock in the history of hosiery. Few, in fact, no other cotton sock has achieved so much notoriety in such a short time. The only other white cotton sock so close to greatness was worn on the, ahem, nether regions, of Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Keidis -- and has been lost to history.

Now this sock will be preserved by the winning bidder -- for all eternity, or approximately 50 washings. TMZ, saving the world, one filthy sock at a time.

Special thanks to the swell peeps at Kompolt.com for handling this auction for us.

I'm sure the high bidder had a dirty foot fetish.

More dollars to Hillary Clinton's favorite left-wing charity. Not amusing.

Sorry, but you're wrong. Red Sox Pitcher Curt Schilling's bloodied sock from the 2004 MLB World Series is THE most famous hosiery in the world, by far!

Hollywood has no memory and cannot see beyond the Hollywood sign. The most famous sock in recent memory is Curt Schilling's bloody baseball sock, folks. Wake up and get a life! At least go to a baseball game or something.

Was he not wearing shoes, such that his sock was injured instead of a shoe? And if it were sandles, would there be a white mark in the middle where the sandle strap goes? I don't know, looks fishy to me.

I want to know too---the sock was bid to over a grand last week. I was shocked when they announced a mere 500 on the show.

Deadbeat bidders perhaps----or maybe bidders who had some sense knocked into them.

What a tacky stunt! But hey! If socks like that will fetch $500 for a worthy cause, I'm sure Britney would be obliged to run over as many TMZ photogs feet as are willing to line up in her path.

TMZ was running the bidding up themsselves, that's why it was oer $1000 for a while. The bidding history shows the same bidder ID making about 6 bids in a row. lol. No real bidder would ever bid against themself that way. The people running the auction probably made them withdraw them. Losers. And I think the TMZ pap must have had an extra sock hidden in his hand, which he smacked down on the ground when the tire neared his sandaled foot. Otherwise the sock (which is obviously a new unwashed sock) would, as weezy mentioned, have white areas where the sandal straps were. Or it was a completely different tire that ran over the sock they (fraudulently) sold.

Anything to make some "news", eh TMZ?

I was going to say the same thing about Curt Shilling's bloody sock, Novatom. Great fans think alike. And the nice thing about that sock is that it acually is a representation of talent and hard work and dedication, and they'll be talking about that for far longer than this one.
