Wesleyan University is one of the nation’s most prestigious colleges. In entertainment alone, it is the alma mater of Avengers director Joss Whedon, The West Wing’s Bradley Whitford, Transformers director Michael Bay – and, of course, How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Not-so-coincidentally, it’s also where HIMYM characters Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Ted (Josh Radnor) first met and consumed many “sandwiches” – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering Marshall Eriksen’s fictional diploma from the venerable institution. Best of all, Marshall’s BA degree in Political Science and Humanitarian Studies can be yours without setting foot in a classroom!…

How I Met Your Mother’s Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) is not exactly a girly girl – she plays hockey, drinks beer and hunts moose. That’s what made her surprise appearance to Barney’s (Neil Patrick Harris) apartment in the eighth-season episode “Lobster Crawl” wearing nothing but her coat and a negligee such a showstopper. Granted, Robin is also fiercely competitive, and the bold fashion statement was part of a ploy to win back Barney (of course, he knew this and was countering her strategy all along by pretending to be entertaining Patrice, leading up to his proposal). Still, fans of the series saw Robin in a whole new light – and the fan that casts the winning bid can take home this landmark piece of wardrobe!…

Chris Elliott is a comedy legend – and the notion of him in a beekeeper suit is a special kind of funny. Such is the genius of How I Met Your Mother, in which Elliott plays Lily’s (Alyson Hannigan) ne’er-do-well board-game-inventing father, Mickey. The beekeeper uniform Chris Elliott wore in the seventh-season episode “The Burning Beekeeper,” in which he was keeping bees in his basement as part of a new get-rich-quick scheme, is now available at VIP Fan Auctions. The episode also marked a momentous occasion in the history of the series as series creator Carter bays told Redditt earlier this year that it’s the one he most regrets: “I wish we’d had an extra week of writing, an extra week of shooting, and an extra week of editing for ‘The Burning Beekeeper.’ It was a science project that we just ran out of time on.…

The world’s strongest man deserves to wield a weapon that suits his stature – and Hercules’ (Dwayne Johnson) long sword fits the bill.

A truly iconic piece of How I Met Your Mother history, Ted Mosby’s (Josh Radnor) infamous red cowboy boots are now available to the fan who places the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. While the sometimes-delusional Ted is notorious for claiming that could “pull off” the red-boot look, though he clearly couldn’t. They were ultimately burned by Jeanette (Abby Elliott) – Ted’s insane former “plus-1” to Barney and Robin’s wedding – at the end of season eight’s “Weekend at Barney’s” episode. The boots are charred, but remain a bold fashion statement. Click here for photos and to place your bid today!…

How I Met Your Mother has had some legen… wait for it… dary guest stars – especially in the show’s third season, which featured Britney Spears, James Van der Beek, Enrique Iglesias and Mandy Moore. In the third-season premiere, “Wait For It,” Ted (Josh Radnor) goes out for a wild night with Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and meets bad girl Amy (played by Mandy Moore), who eventually takes Ted to the tattoo parlor where he receives the infamous butterfly tattoo on his lower back (which leads him to Stella (Sarah Chalke) to have it removed). VIP Fan Auctions is now giving fans of the series an opportunity to claim a piece of this historic episode – the shirt and skirt worn on-screen by Mandy Moore (above) is available to whoever casts the winning bid.…
