About True Blood: The Complete Series
Thanks to a Japanese scientist’s invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures “coming out of the coffin.” In the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is open-minded about the integration of vampires – particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year old living up the road. But at the service of Bill’s less virtuous vampire associates, Sookie is drawn into a series of catastrophes that will put their love to the test.
About True Blood: The Complete Seventh Season
This year, a season-opening battle between raging Hep-Vamps and their Bon Temps prey sets the stage for a season-long series of hair-raising denouements for Sookie, Bill, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Sam (Sam Trammell), Alcide (Joe Manganiello), Tara (Rutina Wesley) and their human/vampire allies and adversaries. As we’ll see, some of True Blood’s most beloved figures will meet cruel fates, while others will cheat death (true and otherwise) to forge happily-ever-after relationships that will leave fans surprised and, ultimately, satisfied. What will happen to your favorite True Blood character?

Well, here’s your chance!
ScreenBid is auctioning off many items that were used on the set of HBO’s True Blood over the last seven seasons. Items will go to auction from the 20th August 2014 and conclude on the 25th of August 2014. There are 54 items in total as part of this rare opportunity to obtain genuine prop and costume items from True Blood.
Details of the auctioning process are below:
Q: How do you get all these items?
A:ScreenBid conducts auctions on behalf of studios and producers who want to make props, wardrobe items, set decoration and other items available to fans and collectors.
Q: But how do I know it’s authentic?
A: Because ScreenBid conducts auctions on behalf of studios and producers, everything we sell comes direct from the source. And every ScreenBid item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the studio or producer, guaranteeing the authenticity of your purchase.

Q: Will I know if someone has outbid me?
A: You sure will. We’ll email you.
Q: Can the computer bid for me?
A: Sort of. You can set a maximum bid – some people call it a “proxy bid” on any item. If someone bids higher than your earlier bid, the computer will automatically increase your bid until you either win or reach your maximum. Other bidders won’t know that you’ve placed a maximum bid. They’ll just know that they have been outbid.
Q: How do I know if I’ve won?
A: You can watch the auction as it closes – it’s really interesting. But you don’t have to. ScreenBid emails all winners as soon as their item closes.
