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!

 

 

PIRATE PAPER

Back in the days before electricity, smartphones and the internet, back when ledgers, logs and manifests were vital to proper bookkeeping – whether a listing of pardoned pirates or patrons of Nassau brothel – a sturdy journal, good novel or encoded message was worth its weight in plundered gold. VIP Fan Auctions is offering several impressive journals featured on-screen in Black Sails, including the leather and cloth ledger used by Max (click here for photos and more information) in Season 2, Captain Vane’s second-season letter to Eleanor (click here), Rackham’s third-season hidden-message letter to Bonny (click here) and Flint and Miranda’s copies of Don Quixote and La Galatea (click here); and the sketchbook of Billy Bones (which includes two pages of sketches, click here); and a collection of novels (click here) from Captain Flint’s library.

HOMELAND’S SECOND LADY

CustomImage-1

As the wife of Homeland’s POW-turned-congressman Nick Brody, Jessica Brody’s (Morena Baccarin) world has been turned upside down more than once. During the second season of Showtime’s Homeland, political fundraisers and the spotlight weighed heavily as her husband ran for vice president. The role as political wife necessitated a high-quality wardrobe, including a blue V-neck Diane Von Fustenberg dress, Guess shoes and blue-and-silver broach (see above) worn on-screen in the second-season episodes “The Clearing” and “I’ll Fly Away.” VIP Fan Auctions is offering the outfit to the fashion-conscious Homeland fan who places the winning bid – click here for photos, more information and to get in on the bidding today! But hurry, this auction is ending soon.

 

BLADE OF BONES

Billybonesattack

Another of the Black Sails cast who first entered popular culture back in 1883 as a character in the classic novel Treasure Island, Billy Bones (aka William Manderly, played by Tom Hopper) is quartermaster of the Walrus ship. He is honest, loyal, brave and believes wholeheartedly in the righteousness of the pirate mission – and isn’t afraid to kill to further it. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the sword of this righteous pirate, featured on-screen in the third-season episode “XXVI.” The prop sword has been exquisitely crafted by the Black Sails props department for authenticity. It measures more than 30-in. long with a handle that is roughly 7-in. wide. Click here for photos, more information and to get in on the bidding today! This auction ends soon.

 

SILVER-TONGUED DEVIL

2_john_silver

The legend of Long John Silver extends well beyond his iconic role in Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island – he has a parrot called Captain Flint and walks with a peg leg, among other features with origins in Black Sails – and he is no less cunning and colorful than in the novel’s television precursor. Beginning his pirate career aboard Captain Flint’s (the human, not the parrot) Walrus ship as an imposter cook, Silver continues to use his charm, lies, cowardice, intelligence and selfishness to benefit the person he cares most about: himself. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering fans of Black Sails (or pirate lore, in general) an opportunity to claim John Silver’s spyglass (pictured above), which is featured on-screen in the third season of Black Sails. The spyglass, created specifically for the Starz epic, is constructed of metal and leather – and the only one of its kind received from production. Don’t miss this opportunity – click here to get in on the bidding for this unique Black Sails prop today!
