Reggie Parks probably does, considering that he made them all.

Parks owns none o them. Zbysko owns his Worrld strap. A private collector owns the Hennig/Lawler belt. I am unsure of the TV and tag belts.

I meant that he had pictures, not that he owns them. He's got pictures of a bunch of AWA belts.

To my knowledge he made all of the AWA straps excluding the jewle encrusted Bockwinkle inmate belt that was used in the 80's. If you want pics Millican or beltmarks should have plenty.

It would help if Gagner used the originals. I want to Reggies site and all he has was the AWA America's, World, and tag team, light heavyweight, and southern title pics. The AWA has many more I havent seen. Any fans recall ever seeing the guys on tv with these belts?

I have seen the old AWA title, with Bockwinkle, Hennig and Gagné wearing it.

Dave Millican owns the belt that was the AWA World Light Heavyweight belt, and was also used as the Womens title. He recently restored the title, and you can see pics at <a href='http://www.davemillicanbelts.com' target='_blank'>www.davemillicanbelts.com</a>

The Amercas Title Belt that is on Park's AWA site is wrong, it is a title owned by a small indy called all star wrestling association out of New Hampshire. It is not a belt used by AMERICAN WRESTLING ASSOCIATION EVER

I've watched some old AWA tAPES and what strikes me funny is the interviews with Sgt Slaughter holding the Americas Belt looks alot like Gagne's old world title from the 70's. Slaughter always has his hand over the small plaque on the bottom of the belt where gagne has his picture on it.

That's because the old AWA Title WAS the America's Title belt. When Hansen ran over the AWA Title belt and they had to re-use the old belt, Slaughter began defending his America's Title with no belt.
