For Immediate release:

(Los Angeles) (September 29, 2014)- If you are seeking to win the prize for Best Halloween Costume and were thinking “Wolverine” might be the character you’d like to be, then Profiles in History’s upcoming October 4-day Hollywood entertainment auction has the ideal costume for the you.

Hugh Jackman’s signature hero leather “Wolverine” battle suit ensemble from X2-X-Men United (TCF 2003) and his hero close-up stainless steel “Wolverine” claws are up for auction.   Considered one of the most popular character in the X-Men films and comic books, the suit and claws epitomizes “Wolverine’s” character and essence.

Pre-auction estimated at $60,000+, the suit also includes a pair of custom black leather gloves featuring  three slits between the knuckles, for Wolverine’s renowned claws to protrude. The ensemble includes a pair of black custom boots with the famed “X” logo. The incredible costume and claws were donated by Hugh Jackman, “Wolverine” himself, to the Fight Cancer Foundation in Australia and comes with a signed LOA by Hugh Jackman.

The final touch of course will be the signature “Wolverine” claws. The paired set of hero “beauty” stainless steel   ‘Wolverine’ claws were used for close-up shots in the making of X2:X-Men United. When worn, the claws give the illusion that the blades protrude from the top of the wearer’s hands by virtue of their tapered design.  Pre-estimated auction value is $25,000+, the incredible stainless steel claws have become the most recognizable of all props and costumes from the X-Men films.

Qualified bidders can participate in person, by telephone, submit absentee bids or participate online in real-time from any location with Internet access. For more information, please visit www.profilesinhistory.com.
