    Joni Mitchell For the Roses RIAA White Mat Gold Record Sales Award (Asylum SD 5057, 1972).

According to the plaque beneath the gold disc, this award was presented to "Asylum Records to Commemorate the Sale of More Than One Million Dollars Worth of the Asylum Records Long-Playing Record Album 'For the Roses'". Framed in wood to an overall 17.5" x 21.5" In Very Good Plus condition, with some scratching and chipping to the frame, and fading to the disc label and LP cover photo.
