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.
