Kiss Autographed Gold Record Sells for Big Bucks

A signed gold-record award presented to Casablanca Records in recognition of selling 500,000 copies of Kiss’ eponymous 1974 album has fetched $2,500 on eBay, after being featured on a June 2013 episode of TV’s ‘Pawn Stars.’

All four original members of Kiss autographed the front glass, making the item all the more valuable through its nine-bid run on the auction site.

Kiss, home to ‘Cold Gin’ (a concert staple written by Ace Frehley) as well as perennial favorite ‘Deuce’ from Gene Simmons, only peaked at No. 84 on the Billboard charts — but it continued to sell as Kiss’ fame grew, eventually being certified gold in 1977.

Included with the original award is a certificate of authenticity, as well as a photo of Paul Stanley holding the gold record after it was signed; his autograph is dated 1993. Peter Criss rounded out the now-disbanded initial foursome in Kiss, which continues to this day with Simmons and Stanley.

Kiss’ current tour has a few U.S. more dates scheduled through August. The band then heads to Japan beginning in October.
