VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of Black Sails an opportunity to take possession of Captain Vane’s screen-used dagger – 18 inches of pure menace – and the last of only three of Vane’s prop daggers received from the Black Sails production.

BACK IN BLACK

Blackbeard is the most fearsome pirate the sea has ever known. Big, burly and brilliant in a buccaneer way, Edward “Blackbeard” Teach (played by Ray Stevenson) is both a mentor and a tormentor.

VIP Fan Auctions is offering the screen-used maroon, brown and grey coat (pictured above, guns not included) which appears to be constructed of a combination of velvet and leather.

HOMELAND HERO

Claire Danes has won multiple Emmy and Golden Globe awards for her portrayal of manic-depressive CIA agent Carrie Mathison on Showtime’s Homeland.

JACK OF ALL TRADES

Black Sails’ Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz) may not be the most capable sailor on the high seas, but he is the most shrewd. As the quartermaster to Captain Vane on the Ranger, Rackham provided a voice of reason to an often unreasonable leader and ultimately shows his worth as a businessman by turning around the brothel. As the captain of Colonial Dawn, he brought home the elusive Spanish treasure ship, the Urca de Lima. Needless to say, Rackham is a major player in Black Sails, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans an opportunity to claim his custom-made, three-corner pirate hat that he wears on-screen in the fourth and final season of the Starz epic series.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN

“When the king brands us ‘pirates,’ he doesn’t mean to make us adversaries,” Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) tells his crew in the first episode of Black Sails. “He doesn’t mean to make us criminals – he means to make us monsters. For that’s the only way his god-fearing, tax-paying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one.” Flint will say or do whatever is necessary to keep his men focused on the Urca de Lima – and after establishing himself as a top earner in Nassau, there’s no reason to doubt his resolve. Fans of Black Sails have an opportunity to stake a claim their own piece of Captain Flint treasure – in the form of his screen-used dagger with a gold-and-silver handle with the head of a lion from the fourth season of the series (click here for photos and more information). Also available is Captain Flint’s custom-made pirate coat worn on-screen in multiple first-season episodes (pictured above, click here), and Flint’s stunt-double’s pirate costume, which includes his boots, belt, pants and shirt (click here).

RACKHAM UP

Credited as the brains behind Captain Vane’s brawn, Jack Rackham (played by Toby Schmitz) is shrewd and charming – though he often finds himself needing to be bailed out of trouble by his beloved Anne Bonny. Eventually, Rackham shows himself to be a capable pirate captain, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the long coat (pictured above) he wears on-screen in the pivotal second-season finale.

NASTY GIRL

When Black Sails fans first meet Anne Bonny (played by Clara Paget), the beautiful woman with the husky brogue quickly carves up a pirate from a rival crew with the mercilessness and tenacity of a shark. From the moment she sneers out from under the low-bent brim of her hat, it becomes instantly clear that Anne Bonny is not a woman who should be underestimated, yet many will continue to make that mistake. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the custom-made dark grey hat she wears on-screen during the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. Inscribed inside is the wardrobe production note “Bonny hero,” which adds to its authenticity.
