Streisand Gold Record Award
This collector’s item is an authentic Recording Industry Association of America® (“RIAA”) award. It features Barbara Streisand’s first Christmas album, “A Christmas Album”, which was released in October 1967.
The Streisand Gold Record Award consists of three items that are mounted on a backing contained within a gold frame (measuring about 17″ W x 21″ H) and a glass cover. The three items are:
- Laser-cut gold plated vinyl record of the 12″ 33 1⁄3 RPM microgroove long-playing album
- Small album cover image (taken during rehearsal for her concert “A Happening in Central Park”)
- RIAA Certified Sales Award plaque presented to Jack Gold who was an A&R executive and producer at Columbia Records. It says:
“Presented to Jack Gold to commemorate the sale of more than 500,000 copies of the Columbia Records Long Playing Record Album ‘Barbra Streisand Christmas Album’“
The backing and the small album cover image are faded and the gold frame is slightly worn. Otherwise, the Streisand Gold Record Award is in excellent condition.
Please note that in the pictures I took, the gold record looks kinda warped. However, it is NOT WARPED, it is in PERFECT CONDITION. It just looks that way because of the reflections.
This Christmas album placed #1 on the Billboard charts 5 weeks in a row and is ranked as one of the best-selling Christmas albums of all time.
Also, Streisand holds the record for the most gold album awards of any female recording artist in RIAA history. The Streisand Gold Record Award makes a great gift for collectors and Streisand fans.
