Some background (from Wikipedia) on the Big Gold Belt - The WCW Championship belt was originally designed in 1985 by silversmith Charles Crumrine and commissioned by Jim Crockett Promotions for NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair. The championship belt has three large gold plates with a distinctive name plate onto which the champions name was etched.
While not the first wrestling championship belt to incorporate a name plate, it popularized the concept. The championship belt debuted on February 14, 1986. As you can see in the picture, this championship belt comes with the nameplate of Ric Flair. You can also see that this is pre WWE days as there is no branding of the company logo on the front of the belt. (WCW is listed on the back of the belt, along with the date, etched into the strap which you can also see in the pictures).
While this belt is in great condition, there are some slight creases on the belt straps from being in a folded position and being never displayed since it arrived on my doorstep from QVC in 1999! This Ric Flair Championship belt has been safely stored in the cloth carrying bag that came with the belt. (Please note that there are some slight stains on the white cloth but it does not affect the belt).From the pictures you can see the gold plates are still vibrant. This Championship belt also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (although Goldbergs belt is displayed in the pic since he was the champ at the time).
