‘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!

 

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.

‘BOOTY’ CALL

Whether it’s buried under the “X” on a map or hidden below deck of the Urca de Lima, the one thing pirates seek above all else is the treasure chest. For centuries, the wooden lockboxes have held a trove of gold coins, pearls, rubies or countless other precious gems and jewels – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering a treasure chest featured on-screen during the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. The weathered wooden chest, created by the Black Sails props department for the series is loaded down with a pirate booty of prop coins – all of which will soon belong to the Black Sails fan who places the winning bid.

A PIRATE’S LIFE

For a bona fide scoundrel, Charles Vane (played by Zach McGowan) will forever be one of the most beloved pirates on Black Sails. The embodiment of “ready, shoot, aim!” the captain of the Ranger was all instinct and impulse – a man who never met a crazy plan he didn’t like. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of Black Sails an opportunity to take possession of Captain Vane’s screen-used dagger – 18 inches of pure menace – and the last of only three of Vane’s prop daggers received from the Black Sails production.

BACK IN BLACK

Blackbeard is the most fearsome pirate the sea has ever known. Big, burly and brilliant in a buccaneer way, Edward “Blackbeard” Teach (played by Ray Stevenson) is both a mentor and a tormentor. He respects and commands power. The custom-made coat he wears in the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails are befitting a man of Blackbeard’s reputations. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the screen-used maroon, brown and grey coat (pictured above, guns not included) which appears to be constructed of a combination of velvet and leather. Don’t miss this chance to own a bona fide piece of pirate legend – and a phenomenal piece of wardrobe from the Starz epic Black Sails.

JACK OF ALL TRADES

Black Sails’ Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz) may not be the most capable sailor on the high seas, but he is the most shrewd. As the quartermaster to Captain Vane on the Ranger, Rackham provided a voice of reason to an often unreasonable leader and ultimately shows his worth as a businessman by turning around the brothel. As the captain of Colonial Dawn, he brought home the elusive Spanish treasure ship, the Urca de Lima. Needless to say, Rackham is a major player in Black Sails, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans an opportunity to claim his custom-made, three-corner pirate hat that he wears on-screen in the fourth and final season of the Starz epic series.

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.
