ROCK IT

A grandstanding defense attorney who loves conflict – and isn’t afraid to break the rules to win – Guilt’s Stan Gutterie (played by Billy Zane) is very good at his job and has accumulated many wonderful toys throughout his career, including a six-string electric guitar rocking a unique hand-drawn design. Featured in the pivotal episode “Eyes Wide Open” (during which Grace realizes she is not a murderer), the guitar is red, white, blue and black – and comes with a guitar stand. If you’re looking for an axe with some Hollywood cred, visit VIP Fan Auctions now or click here for more information, photos and to place a bid on Gutterie’s guitar today!

 

GET YE TO THE CHURCH ON TIME

For pirates in search of confession, the Congregational Church on Black Sails welcomes all – it says so right on the church’s sign. While there’s never exactly been a long line of crew disembarking their ships or ladies making the trek from Noonan’s brothel to the church in search of absolution, but the doors are open. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the church’s sign to the Black Sails fan who casts the winning bid for this one-of-a-kind piece of set decoration. This literal “sign” from God is weathered and wood, measuring 30 x 36 inches, and features a cross and the words “Congregational Church, Daily Service 8 o’clock, All Are Welcome.” Click here for more information and photos of the sign, and get in on the bidding today!

 

‘SILVER’ BLADE

John Silver, the villain of the classic novel Treasure Island began as a lowly sailor, opportunist and thief 20 years earlier in the Starz pirate epic Black Sails. A lousy cook with a good memory, Silver (played by Luke Arnold) was gifted in the art of self-preservation but ultimately discovers his inner hero – along with a quest for gold – though it costs him his leg. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the dagger of this legendary figure. Used on-screen in the fourth season of Black Sails, the prop dagger is more than 15 inches long and designed for authenticity. Click here for photos of this amazing piece of Hollywood pirate weaponry – and get in on the bidding today!

 

‘BLACK’ HAT

There is no pirate as notorious as Blackbeard. Born Edward Teach, Blackbeard was captain of the heavily armed Queen Anne’s Revenge – formerly a French merchant ship he captured. Played by Ray Stevenson on Black Sails, Blackbeard was a mentor to Captain Vane (the son he never had, despite trying with nine wives) and a fierce fighter and brilliant tactician who will undoubtedly play a vital role in pirate rebellion in the fourth and final season of Black Sails. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of the series an amazing opportunity to own Blackbeard’s hat (pictured above) – a one-of-a-kind three-corner leather hat custom-made for Black Sails. Don’t let this opportunity to plunder Blackbeard’s wardrobe – click here for photos and more information, and place your bid today.

 

HOMELAND: IMMUNITY

Homeland’s Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) was one of the despised-yet-beloved heroes in television history. A prisoner of war who returns home a terrorist and eventually sacrifices his own life to help stop a terrorist plot against the United States, Brody is a complicated man. He is ultimately offered immunity of his crimes in exchange for his cooperation in the apprehension of suspected al-Qaeda Abu Nazir – the man who turned Brody against the country he swore to defend. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the screen-used CIA immunity memo featured in Homeland – on CIA letterhead and signed by the attorney general. To claim this piece of paperwork that was so vital to the plot of Homeland, click here. It is the only memo of its kind received from production, and the only evidence that Brody died a hero.

BLACK SAILS: DEAD MAN’S DAGGER

Black Sails will mark its fourth-season return without Captain Vane (played by Zach McGowan). The former captain of the pirate ship Ranger met the noose, but his death launched a rebellion against England that will undoubtedly play out throughout Black Sails’ fourth and final season. Fans of the Starz pirate epic now have a chance to own Captain Vane’s dagger – an 18-inch black-and-silver weapon with a, 11-in. blade (five inches wide, pictured above) that has been constructed by the Black Sails props department from hard rubber. Don’t miss this chance to claim the preferred weapon of a legendary pirate – and one of the most popular characters on Black Sails. Click here for photos and to get in on the bidding today – this VIP auction is ending soon!

 

BONNY’S BONNET

Anne Bonny is a legend of the high seas. A pirate as capable, cunning and ruthless as any male buccaneer, Anne Bonny is one of the most popular characters on Black Sails and possibly in all of pirate lore. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the custom-made brown hat worn by Anne Bonny (played by Clara Paget) on Black Sails. Also available is her long brown coat worn on-screen (both hat and coat are pictured above) during the first two seasons of Black Sails. Don’t miss this chance to claim a piece of history from one of television’s truly epic series. Click here to see all of the available Black Sails wardrobe and props, and get in on the bidding today!

 

SECRET AGENT MAN

Homeland’s Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) would not appreciate having his identification compromised, but VIP Fan Auctions is offering his screen-used CIA ID card to the highest bidder. It’s certainly surprising for an operative as calculated as Saul to lose such vital documents – the card features Saul’s photo and agent ID number (inset, above) – so any bidders should beware that it might be part of a bigger plan by the now-CIA director. This card may be worth the risk of being grabbed in the middle of the night with a bag over your head and waking up in a cargo hold in the middle of the Atlantic, so click here for photos, more information and to get in on the bidding of this unique piece of the Showtime hit Homeland.

 

THE ROCK-STAR PIRATE

Life on the high seas doesn’t offer much protection from the elements, and the Mediterranean sun can play havoc with a pirate’s vision. While sunscreen wouldn’t be invented until the 1930s, sunglasses were already a fashion statement and a necessity, and the unique pair of shades worn on-screen by the stylish pirate captain Jack Rackham (played by Toby Schmitz) in a first-season episode of Black Sails are currently available to the fan who places the winning bid. While Rackham’s sideburns are more impressive than his fighting skills, it’s his wit, intelligence and style that makes him attractive to his beloved Anne Bonny, who more than makes up for his shortcomings. Click here for more information and photos of the flamboyant pirate’s eyewear (pictured above) – and get in on the bidding for this signature piece of Black Sails today!

 

 

MERCHANT OF NASSAU

“She’s a chameleon,” actress Hannah New told IGN of her Black Sails alter ego Eleanor Guthrie. “She adapts to survive.” Her father became one of the wealthiest men in the Bahamas by helping pirates smuggle, fence goods and loan money to finance their plundering operations, and Eleanor took over the family business and has remained a woman of considerable influence – until she is handed over to the British authorities and touches off a pirate rebellion. As beautiful as she is cunning, Eleanor brings a stunning sense of style to Nassau, and the custom-made brown leather jacket she wears on-screen (pictured above) in the second season of Black sails is now available to the fan who places the winning bid. Click here for photos and more information about Eleanor’s jacket and stake your claim today!
