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.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN

“When the king brands us ‘pirates,’ he doesn’t mean to make us adversaries,” Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) tells his crew in the first episode of Black Sails. “He doesn’t mean to make us criminals – he means to make us monsters. For that’s the only way his god-fearing, tax-paying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one.” Flint will say or do whatever is necessary to keep his men focused on the Urca de Lima – and after establishing himself as a top earner in Nassau, there’s no reason to doubt his resolve. Fans of Black Sails have an opportunity to stake a claim their own piece of Captain Flint treasure – in the form of his screen-used dagger with a gold-and-silver handle with the head of a lion from the fourth season of the series (click here for photos and more information). Also available is Captain Flint’s custom-made pirate coat worn on-screen in multiple first-season episodes (pictured above, click here), and Flint’s stunt-double’s pirate costume, which includes his boots, belt, pants and shirt (click here). Don’t miss out on your chance to own a piece of Black Sails today – click here to visit VIP Fan Auctions and see all of the available props and wardrobe items from the epic Starz series today!

 

BLACK SAILS BATTLE GEAR

Daggers, swords and other devices that shoot, slice or smash on the high seas are natural extensions of any pirate’s hand, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering some of the notorious weapons wielded on-screen by Black Sails’ most popular buccaneers. Currently on the auction block is the dagger used by Captain Vane (click here for photos and more information), a gold-and-silver handled stunt dagger used by Captain Flint (click here) and, perhaps the greatest weapon a pirate can have, the combination axe/rifle used by Billy Bones (click here). Visit the Black Sails auction page for these and other weapons, wardrobe and props from the epic Starz series.

 

 

SILVER WEAR

Black Sails’ reluctant pirate hero John Silver (Luke Arnold) has paid a dear price for his loyalty, but his cunning and wit allow him to be a voice of reason to the increasingly tyrannical Captain Flint – and he eventually realizes the power he possesses in being both loved and feared. VIP Fan Auctions is offering several signature wardrobe pieces of the legendary pirate, including Silver’s custom-designed blue and black long pirate coat (pictured above; click here for photos and more information). Also available is the green custom-made jacket Silver wore on-screen during the second season of Black Sails (click here for photos and more information). From the second episode of Black Sails, John Silver’s screen-used shirt, pants and blanket are also available to the fan who casts the winning bid (click here for photos and more information).

SHIPMATE STEEL

The dagger used by Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) during the fourth season of Black Sails is as impressive as it is well-used. Crafted from silver and gold, the prop weapon is befitting an accomplished master and commander. The dagger measures more than 15 inches long with a 10-inch blade and a handle engraved with a lion’s head. Click here for photos, more information and to place a bid on Flint’s dagger today. VIP Fan Auctions is also offering shipmate John Silver’s (Luke Arnold) screen-used dagger, which is roughly the same size as Flint’s but more subdued with a simple brown and gold handle.

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.

LAND, HO!

A spyglass is as vital to pirate lore as parrots, eyepatches and peg legs.

Though it may be impossible to see on television, engraved on the spyglass are the words “Orion Spotter” as eell as “Made by W.

Created by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1881, Captain James Flint experienced a resurgence more than a century later when Black Sails dropped anchor on Starz. As charismatic as he is brutal, Captain Flint is the most feared pirate of the Caribbean. Set 20 years before the events of the classic novel Treasure Island, Black Sails will lower its flag after its upcoming fourth and final season, but not before VIP Fan Auctions gives fans of the epic adventure an opportunity to claim a piece of series for themselves – including the signature black coat worn on-screen by Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) during the second and third seasons. The leather coat (pictured above) is a remarkable piece of custom tailoring, created specifically for the captain – but destined for the Black Sails fan who casts the winning bid.
