A PIRATE’S LIFE

Black Sails remains the most addictive and intense high-seas tale ever to plunder television. The Starz series is also responsible for bringing a new generation of readers to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island simply for a glimpse into the future of Black Sails stalwarts like Long John Silver and Billy Bones – two key figures in the pirate rebellion. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of Black Sails a chance to claim a piece of the groundbreaking series by offering daggers wielded on-screen by several pirate legends – including the dagger of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), a blade used on-screen by Charles Vane (Zach McGowan), a weapon of choice that belonged to the cut-throat Anne Bonny (Clara Paget), Blackbeard’s (Ray Stevenson) deadly steel and a gold-handled knife used by Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz).

PIRATE QUEEN

Anne Bonny may be the fiercest pirate – woman or man – ever to plunder the Caribbean. As loyal as she is vicious, Anne Bonny (played by Clara Paget in Black Sails) is, above all, fearless. She will take on a brute three times her size (and holding a sledge hammer) using nothing but her wits and two shards of glass to defeat him. She is even more deadly with a dagger and sword – and more cunning than most captains, soldiers and governors. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Anne Bonny’s signature long coat (see above) worn on-screen by her stunt double in Black Sails. The pirate coat is weathered from the sea with unique stitching and patterns that gives it an unmistakable style.

LITTLE DITTY ‘BOUT JACK AND ANNE

There may be no couple more loyal to each other than Captain Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz) and shipmate Anne Bonny (Clara Paget) on Black Sails. The pirate pair are true partners in life and on the high seas – and they know each other well enough to “read between the lines” without writing in secret code, simply by knowing what the other would think and do in any given situation. Case in point: When Jack writes Anne a letter informing her that the Governor has figured out their plan and to return to Nassau for a pardon (see above), she instinctively knows to do the exact opposite – and he instinctively knows that she will do just that. It’s a pivotal letter that helps set into motion the revolution. VIP Fan Auctions is offering this screen-used letter, complete with Rackham’s calligraphic handwriting, along with several red seals for authenticity. Click here for photos of this important Black Sails prop – and claim your piece of pirate history today! But don’t delay – this auction is ending soon.

 

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. Rackham’s custom-designed coat – one of only two received from the Black Sails production) – is brown, grey and dirty from sailing and battle on the high seas and in Nassau.

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. Click here for photos and more information on this trademark piece of Anne Bonny’s wardrobe – and join the bidding today. This auction ends soon.

 

BONNY LIES OVER THE OCEAN

As beautiful as she is cold-blooded, Anne Bonny (played on Black Sails by Clara Paget) entered the pirate life when Jack Rackham slit the throat of the abusive man who made young Anne his child bride. Joining the crew of Captain Charles Vane, Anne Bonny was a quick study and settled in to life on the high seas as the most notorious pirate in history. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a piece of the character’s unique wardrobe – Anne Bonny’s custom-made coat (pictured above) worn on-screen in seasons two through four. Brown and green in color and distressed for authenticity, the long coat will protect the high bidder form the elements – and provide a distinctive piece of Black Sails history.

THREE CORNERS

The three-corner pirate hat is a signature piece of any buccaneer’s wardrobe, and the hat worn on-screen in Black Sails by Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz) is the epitome of pirate fashion. The distressed brown leather hat (pictured above) was built for the high seas and worn in multiple episodes by the quartermaster of the pirate ship Ranger and the eventual captain of Colonial dawn. The hat is obviously lucky as Rackham successfully found the Urca gold and survived numerous battles alongside Charles Vane and Anne Bonny.

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.
