RIAA Platinum album award for Warrant's Cherry Pie, which was the group's third album released on Sept. 7, 1990. The release was certified 2x Multi-Platinum™ by the RIAA on Aug. 6, 1991 for two million copies sold.
The title track, along with "I Saw Red" and "Uncle Tom's Cabin" were hits on the album, achieving significant airplay on radio and MTV for the band. This was also the group's best-selling release, rising to # 7 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Remember the late Jani Lane (1964-2011) with this award.

Notes on the condition of all vintage RIAA awards: 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.
