APRIL 26, 2021 – Music memorabilia online retailer MusicGoldmine® specializes in selling all kinds of music memorabilia. One of its most popular categories is pre-owned Gold and Platinum record awards for albums and singles made under license of the RIAA, a record industry trade organization that created the program in the 1950s to recognize sales levels of music releases.
These record awards can only be ordered new by artists and the creative and business professionals who work with them so they have never been made available to the public. They can only be acquired through the used collectibles market, resulting in a robust collector scene that has driven up prices, especially for older awards. For example, in the past year MusicGoldmine.com sold a pair of early 1970s Rolling Stones awards, a 1972 Doors award, and a 1967 Beatles award, each for around $10,000.
Not all awards are so expensive however, with a wide variety available from the 1960s thru today. MusicGoldmine.com typically has over 150 to choose from currently starting at $75, with new artists and titles from all music genres arriving all the time.
Other collectibles the company carries includes artist signed guitars, albums, and collages — all authenticated by top-tier, third-party autograph authenticators — along with posters, concert handbills and programs, vintage concert apparel and more.
All of these memorabilia categories have seen huge demand as both serious collectors and casual fans continue to snap up items from their favorite musical artists. The appeal is to own a little piece of music history from a much-loved artist, to remember a song or album that meant a lot to the person, or perhaps as an alternative investment. No one knows where collectibles prices will go in the future, but in recent years prices have definitely risen.
The company recommends those interested in music memorabilia learn about music collectibles before buying. Their website also contains guides and articles about record awards, autograph collecting and more to help consumers learn about the different items available and how to find genuine memorabilia.
