Mick Foley -- Surrendering MR. SOCKO ... For Charity

5/4/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who once donned the mask of Mankind -- wrestling legend Mick Foley -- is now auctioning off one of the most ICONIC pieces of pro wrestling history ... MR. SOCKO ... and he's doing it all for charity.

You might recognize it -- it's the same Mr. Socko Mankind infamously used to ensnare The Rock back in 1998 ... securing his first WWF championship title. Yes, it was WWF back then.

And that's just the beginning -- Mick's also selling off his original Mankind sleeveless shirt, the elastic wristband he used to execute THE MANDIBLE CLAW ... and the bloody rags he wore when he faced Ric Flair last year ... possibly Mick's last match ever.

The auction's going live today ... and it's all to benefit Mick's charity -- the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

We're told Mick has already raised $100,000 for the cause -- but wants to keep going ... and pull in as much money as possible. Check out the auction here.

I hear the sock comes with a few stains too.

Oh brother! Harvey might actually open his wallet for this one.

If he wants to raise more money, he needs to quit TNA and go back to WWE because most people don't know what the H TNA is and if they saw it, they'd wish they hadn't.

He should do a promo video for RAINN in the tortured Mankind Character.

I wish he could auction off his ear that was ripped off when he fought Vader in WCW.

It is nice to see a wrestler using his fame for something positive. Let's hope Mick keeps it up and does more good things before the crippling headaches and brain damaged-murder rampage ensues. Just sayin'!
