ADVENTURES OF SILVER AND FLINT

John Silver and Captain Flint are like a pirate version of mismatched partners on a road trip. The silver-tongued Silver (Luke Arnold), who knows the power of a story, and the battering-ram Flint (Toby Stephens), whose relentlessness in the pursuit of whatever it is he sets his sights – together, there seems to be no odds they can’t overcome. Of course, their personalities are often backed up by brutality, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the tools of their trade. Currently available is John Silver’s 15-inch screen-used dagger from the fourth season of Black Sails. In addition, Captain Flint’s gold-handled dagger with what appears to be the head of a griffin sculpted into the handle used on-screen in the final season of Black Sails is also on the auction block. Click here to see all of the available Black Sails props, weapons and wardrobe items now available – and claim your piece of the epic pirate adventure today!

 

CAPTAIN JACK

 

Jack Rackham (played by Toby Schmitz) has had a colorful career throughout his tenure of Black Sails. Introduced as a member of Charles Vane’s crew, he suddenly found himself a brothel owner and then the unlikely captain of his own crew (despite being temporarily branded a crew-killer by Vane), Rackham deftly walks the line between con man and hero. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the custom-made brown-and-yellow overcoat Rackham wears on-screen during the final season of Black Sails.

But act swiftly – just as the Urca gold wouldn’t be on the beach forever, the auction for this piece of Black Sails wardrobe is ending soon!

 

SEA LION

The legendary pirate Blackbeard (née Edward Teach) strikes an imposing figure. A lion of the sea, the ocean is Blackbeard’s savanna – “everything that walks and crawls upon it belongs to him,” he tells his protégé Charles Vane on the epic Starz series Black Sails. The mention of his name strikes fear in the hearts of honest men and pirates alike – Blackbeard (played by Ray Stevenson) is heavily armed, always ready for a fight and value’s strength above all else. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Blackbeard’s screen-worn, custom-designed pirate wardrobe worn in the first three episodes of the fourth and final season of Black Sails. The costume includes Blackbeard’s vest, pants, shirt and sash. Click here for photos and more information on this amazing example of TV costuming – and get in on the bidding today!

 

CAPTAIN MAYHEM

Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) is a complicated man. He will let nothing stand in the way of achieving his goals, especially when that goal is seizing a Spanish ship full of gold. He will kill his friends, befriend his enemies and take any chance, no matter how dangerous, to get what he wants – and convince others to go along with him. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the long coat he wears onscreen in the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. The open-front coat (pictured above) is custom made, designed with an eye toward authenticity and intricate detail – and it will soon belong to the Black Sails fan who casts the winning bid.

FIRING LINE

Edward “Blackbeard” Teach didn’t become the most feared and famous pirate of the high seas by being timid. The fierce mentor of Charles Vane, Blackbeard (played by Ray Stevenson) is heavily armed on land and sea, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of his brown-and-gold Queen Anne pistols (pictured above) he carries in the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. Click here for photos and more information on these prop weapons designed by the Black Sails props department for maximum authenticity – and stake your claim to a real treasure from the Starz epic.

 

‘BLACK’ FLAG

In the days of Black Sails, pirates knew no boundaries, and they acknowledged no government rule. They flew the flag of their ship – and the sight of a pirate flag often spelled mayhem and doom for any crew who encountered it. VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of the most memorable pirate flags from Black Sails – the red skeleton holding a bleeding heart, which flew on the ship of Captain Ned Low, an ill-tempered pirate captain notorious for brutality, in the second-season premiere of the Starz epic. The flag is impressive (pictured above flying off the stern of the ship), measuring 12×19 feet and a bit tattered from battle and the elements. Click here for photos and more information, and claim your own pirate flag straight from the seas of Black Sails!

 

THE PIRATE SCOURGE

Historians call Woodes Rogers the privateer and pirate hunter responsible for taming the Bahamas by stamping out the pirates to bring the island nation under British rule. To accomplish this feat in Black Sails, Rogers (played by Luke Roberts) grants pardons to the pirates sailing out of Nassau – as well Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New), whose help he enlists to complete the transition. He asks her to provide the names of those who will resist British rule. She only gives him one – Charles Vane – but Rogers will soon discover that bringing British rule to Nassau will be no easy task. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans an opportunity to claim four distinctive rings worn on-screen by Rogers during the third and fourth seasons – all are gold or bronze and black in color (click here to see the rings) – and fitting of a nobleman with the heart of a sailor.

THE MAN WHO KNOWS TOO MUCH

As one of the CIA’s most experienced counter-terrorism experts, there isn’t much going on in the world of which Homeland’s Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) isn’t aware. Perhaps his greatest weakness is his unpredictable protégé Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), but despite the sometimes-distasteful nature of his job, Saul carries on in hopes of keeping the country safe. “Every breath Saul Berenson takes is filled with hope and optimism,” Patinkin told Radio Times last year. “And that is what guides his soul – and keeps him searching for a more peaceful world.” There’s no doubt that Saul is one of the most complex and riveting characters on television, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans an opportunity to claim a piece of Saul’s history on Homeland by offering his screen-worn wristwatch, his (inconclusive) National Security Agency polygraph report from season 2, Saul’s license plates from Virginia (seasons 1 and 2) and Washington, D.C. (season 3), as well as several postcards, note, hospital visitors pass and more straight from the set of Homeland.

NASSAU STINGER

Bees can be deadly, nurturing and, above all, necessary to growth. It’s only fitting that Eleanor Guthrie (played by Hannah New) – who wields great influence in Nassau and can make or break a pirate crew – should wear a bee around her neck in Black Sails. The custom-made necklace and charm (pictured above) is worn on-screen by Eleanor during the fourth season of the Starz pirate epic, and it serves as a reminder that while beautiful, she can also pack a deadly sting.

SILVER’S COAT AND ARMS

There may be no pirate who has evolved as much as John Silver. Once a proud coward and thief, Long John would become a battle-tested hero of the high seas. Fans of the character now have an opportunity to own his screen-used dagger, which he used on screen in the fourth season of Black Sails (see it tucked in his belt above, click here for more information). John Silver’s (Luke Arnold) custom-made coat worn on-screen in the third and fourth season of Black Sails (pictured above) is also now available to the fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. The unique blue-and-black coat will protect you from the harsh conditions sailing the salty seas – and it’s a rugged fashion statement on land. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of Black Sails, worn by one of the series beloved characters – as well as one of the most iconic pirates in history.
