A&M Records award for Bryan Adams album Reckless. The album was released on Nov. 5, 1984 and while this is not a RIAA award, this album was in fact certified Platinum by the RIAA in Feb. 1985 for one million copies sold, and would go on to 5x Multi-Platinum status by 1992. 

The album produced six hit singles including some of Adams signature songs: "Run to You", "Somebody", "Heaven", "Summer of '69", "One Night Love Affair", and "It's Only Love" (a duet with Tina Turner that garnered a Grammy award nomination). All six went into the top 15 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with "Heaven" topping the chart. The album topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, also hitting #1 in New Zealand and in Adams' native Canada, while also appearing on many other world charts.

Notes on the condition of all vintage RIAA 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.
