Five lucky winners will receive a set of The Uncanny X-Men #141 and #142. All are professionally graded near-mint by CGC, with the grand prize set signed by Marvel Comics’ legendary founder, Stan “The Man” Lee himself!
Your love of collecting comics could help you win two of the greatest X-Men comics of all time! Register for the contest at FyndIt and post a WANT or a FIND to enter to win!
FyndIt is a community of collectors that helps each other find great stuff: comics, memorabilia, toys-you name it! FyndIt members post a WANT – a hard-to-find collectible they’re looking for – or receive a bounty reward for a FIND that another member wants. It’s super easy to cash out your bounty rewards through PayPal!
And that’s exactly how you enter this contest – every WANT or FIND you post is your chance to win these legendary X-Men comics! Each WANT or FIND you post counts as a single entry. Limit of one entry per member per day.
HOW TO ENTER
Your WANT or FIND should include a clear picture and description of the item as well as information about why you selected the particular item in 100 words or less. The more interesting your item and description are, the better your entry will score.
Your WANTor FIND must be legitimate. You shouldn’t add a WANT for something which is commonly available (like a gallon of milk) or something which can’t be found (like a real unicorn). You shouldn’t add a FIND for something that doesn’t exist (like BigFoot), probably can’t be found (like Noah’s Ark), or you haven’t actually found. And of course, you shouldn’t add a WANT or FIND for something which breaks FyndIt’s Terms of Service.
WHEN TO ENTER
You can enter between April 28, 2014 and May 25, 2014. There will be five periods for entry during the Entry Period: April 28 – May 4th, May 5th – May 11th, May 12th – May 18th , May 19th – May 25th , and May 26th- June 1st, and each is an “Entry Week.” You can enter as many times as you wish during the Entry Period, but only one entry per day. If you make more than one entry in a given day, only the first entry will be accepted.
What Can you Win?
There are five awesome comic book prizes! We will award a total of four winners each one set of CGC-Certified near mint-condition “X-Men” Issues #141 and #142 as the weekly prize. We will award a total of one winner one set of CGC-Certified near mint-condition “X-Men” Issues #141 and #142 autographed by Stan Lee as the Grand Prize!
Did You Win?
We will consider winners after each Entry Week during the Entry Period for a Weekly Prize. It doesn’t matter when you post your entry during the Entry Week, so long as it is entered on FyndIt by the Sunday before each Weekly Prize Judging. See the contest rules for exact dates.
There will be a total of 100 points available per judge. Judges will consider the following criteria:
Complete: How complete is the WANT or FIND? Does it include a clear picture, especially if it’s a FIND? Of course, for a WANT, if you don’t have a picture, then we would understand so long as there is a clear and complete written description. The more complete your entry is, the higher your entry will score. Your entry will receive up to 15 points for completeness.
Meaningfully Titled: Does it include a meaningful title? For example, “Comic” is not an especially helpful title. “X-Men Issue #141, Mint Condition” is a very helpful title. The more meaningful your title is, the higher your entry will score. Your title is worth up to 15 points.
Helpful and Awesome Description: Does it include a helpful and meaningful description in one hundred (100) words or less? Remember, if you’re posting a WANT, the description helps make sure Finders are looking for the right thing. Sharing why you WANT an item or any helpful background information might help Finders locate your WANT! If you’re posting a FIND, you need to convince the Wanter that this is the one they want. Sharing the story of how you found it could help convince the Wanter to WANT your FIND that much more! The more helpful and interesting your description is, the higher your entry will score. Your description is worth up to 55 points.
Unique or difficult to find: Is your WANT or FIND something which could be considered hard for someone to find? It can range from something truly rare (like an original signed set of X-Men #’s 141 and 142), to something less rare, but hard to find in, say, St. Louis, MO, or even something just unique, like a Life Size Mr. Peanut Statue. The more unique or difficult to find your entry is, the higher your entry will score, and is worth up to 15 points.
