I have a RIAA award to commemorate the sale of 8,000,000 of the Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness album. I bought this a couple years ago from the original owner who never opened it. So I was the first one to take it out the original package to hang it in my room. It has never moved since.
I need money to pay my university so this is why I’m selling it. I know I’ll forever regret this but I need money badly and it’s the most valuable thing I own.
I was wondering how much you guys would think this piece worth? It’s in mint condition. Do you think the prices listed on this site are accurate?
P.S. Sorry for my not so good english, I do speak french.

That’s a really awesome item. I don’t collect these, but have seen prices for them. Maybe $800-$1000 or so? That would be my guess.

Thank you. I will do everything I can to hold on this piece but for now I need the money for school. Where did you see them for sale so I could post mine.

I bought mine also from the original owner, not sealed though. She was in bad need for money at that time also (many years ago, more than 5 at least, but after 2000) and I paid 330 US$ if I remember well. That was via eBay. Another one was sold last year on eBay for 700-800 US$ if I remember well again, and the prices mentioned on SPfreaks are the EIL.com prices in this case. EIL.com had one for sale also a few years ago, and they asked 1,250 US$ for it. Maybe this helps, .drowned.?
PS I would NEVER sell it, to be honest… I also have the TAFH sales award, and together they are amongst the most precious, special Smashing Pumpkins items I have collected over the years… I feel for you, must be an extremely hard decision, considering you are still a fan!

Still a fan eh!? Still a fan? What kind of question is that? I still have to upload my collection on this site … if only it wasnt THAT long to do! I’m not really patient I guess.
This would be the third biggest mistake of my life after moving from Switzerland to Canada … and selling my 1983 Rabbit. But as I said .. I need the money. I’ll do everything to keep this award tho.
Thank you for all of your headups and I will keep you posted!!
