Detailed Item Description: This is an in-house award from Bon Jovi to Atlantic records executive Judy Libow, who started in radio and worked at Atlantic Records for 16 years, much of the time as VP of Radio Promotion. The award plaque features album artwork and tour dates and would have been manufactured in 1994-95, making it approximately 28-29 years old.
The award is in VG condition with mars on plexiglass and frame. There are two fairly major chips on the bottom right of the frame (see image) but due to their location, they are not visible when the award is viewed hanging on a wall. The metal presentation plate is unique in that it has printed autographs from the band on it. Award has the original manufacturer label from Ill Eagle Enterprises on it's backing paper. Ill Eagle also made RIAA awards during this time period (note that this is not a RIAA award).

Notes on the condition of all vintage record awards like this one: Please do not buy this item if you want a brand new piece of memorabilia. These are historical artifacts from the year they were produced. As a result they may show signs of wear. Frankly, if you see a 20 to 50-year-old award purported to be in 100% perfect condition, it might be too good to be true. After all, an antique should have "good" wear. If not, you might want to question the piece.
As to where they came from, they could have been displayed in record label offices, recording studios, artist manager's offices, radio stations, private collector's homes and yes, of course, possibly the artist's or songwriter's home. Typically, we don't know all the places they may have been over the years other than what we've stated in the description.
Finally, a word on photos: Our photos are zoomable so you can get a very good look. Do let us know if you want photos of any other details on our pieces and we'll be happy to provide.
