The demise of Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's 38 Studios was swift and spectacular. The gaming company filed for bankruptcy in June after defaulting on $75 million in loans from the state of Rhode Island.

On Wednesday, the state started to recoup its money by auctioning off 38 Studios property. Among the items: a hat once worn by Lou Gehrig, office supplies including microwaves and computers, and swords and armor.
