This framed RCA Victor award dedicated to Colonel Parker contains a platinum-colored record mounted on green velvet above a plaque that reads “To Col. Tom Parker in appreciation of his contribution toward making ‘Don’t’ a Million Seller 1958.” “Don’t” was recorded by Elvis on September 6, 1957 and released by RCA on January 7, 1958 with “I Beg of You” as the B-side. “Don’t” was Elvis’ 11th hit in the U.S.; the ballad ranked number three on the charts in 1958. The award measures 16 1/8 by 14 1/8 inches (40.95 x 35.87 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The award’s green felt presents very clean and supple, but the record has suffered from moderate oxidation and the frame has many scratches dents and other distresses. Very Good to Excellent condition.
