Over the last five weeks, X-Men fans have been busy posting Wants and Finds to FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest in hopes of winning the Grand Prize set of CGC Signature Series comics that inspired the worldwide box office smash hit X-Men Days of Future Past. Lots of hard-to-find comics, rare superhero statues, old school gaming equipment and other great collectibles were posted as contest entries by people looking for stuff and by people who know where to get it on FyndIt.
Four lucky winners have been awarded a set of CGC 9.8 NM Uncanny X-Men issues #141 and #142 valued at $300.00. Our lucky Grand Prize winner has been awarded a CGC Signature Series of the same set of X-Men comics signed by comic book legend Stan Lee valued at $1,500.00. Boy, the contest participants made it tough on the judges! We had so many awesome and unique Wants and Finds to look through in order to narrow down it down to the top five winners. We wanted to give a big shout out to all of our new members who entered FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest!
Let’s get to the part we have all been waiting for! Drumroll please…
CONGRATULATIONS to Nerdlyweds, on being selected as the Grand Prize winner of FyndIt’s Classic X-Men Comic Contest! The one-of-a-kind Find was the Week 4 Winner of our contest. The Grand Prize Find is a character mask worn by actor Hinton Battle in a memorable musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer season six. In this fan-favorite BtVS episode, Sweet the jazz demon forces Buffy characters to sing and dance, spilling their biggest secrets and untold truths. This iconic piece of Buffy history has been part of a private collection and is now available for sale to the serious Buffy collector. If you are obsessed with Buffy or dancing musical demons, Nerdlyweds knows where to find unique and rare television props!

Nerdlyweds Grand Prize Find was actually the only Find chosen during the contest period. The other four winners posted Wants as contest entries. A Want is an item a person is looking for in a specific condition and for a particular price. They post their Want to FyndIt with the offer of a small bounty reward to the person who can help them track the item down for sale.
