Stranger Than Fiction gold record auctioned

Sold only days ago on the British eBay for GBP127 ($206/€160), this RIAA certified Gold record is now being sold on a German charity-auction site.


http://www.unitedcharity.de/Home/Hilfsprojekte/Karanjorro-e.V./Bad-Religion-Gold-Award


They sell it as "The original gold record of Bad Religion". It's not clear exactly how many were actually made, but we do know that the band members received five each. Add to that at least one that was presented to Atlantic in general, but also the ones that were given to people involved in the making of Stranger Than Fiction.


This particular gold record was given to Howard Menzies, who was the band's tour manager between 1992-1995.


The estimated value on the charity-auction site is €2500. So if you were outbid on the original British auction, this is your chance to get your hands on it for, well, probably 10 times the original price from a few days ago.


On March 3rd 1998 Stranger Than Fiction officially became Bad Religion's first gold record; over half a million copies were sold in the US. Read more.


The charity for this particular aucation is the building of a school in Senegal with a well being the first step: http://www.unitedcharity.de/Home/Hilfsprojekte/Karanjorro-e.V.

it's not enough to just not care anymore... you have to not care harder than everyone else, otherwise you just come off as a caring poseur

the first step toward a solution is admitting you have a problem... the next biggest hurdle is admitting that YOU are the problem.
