After his Army service Elvis quickly began recording again for RCA, and in 1960 a single was released with “Stuck on You” on the A side and “Fame and Fortune” on the B side. “Stuck on You” was recorded in March 1960 and was the first hit single for Elvis after his military service, reaching number 1 on the Billboard charts just weeks after its release, testifying to the desire for tunes from the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll after a stretch without. It was Elvis’ first hit single of the year and his 13th overall. Prior to the establishment of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 1958, record awards were issued to artists by their own record companies to promote their sales achievements, and RCA continued this tradition for a number of years after 1958. The first gold record award issued by RCA was in 1942 to Glenn Miller and His Orchestra for “Chattanooga Choo Choo” selling over a million singles. The offered early framed RCA Victor 45 award for “Stuck On You” is dedicated “To Col. Tom Parker In Appreciation of His Contribution Toward Making Stuck on You A Million Seller 1960.” The award measures approximately 16 by 14 inches (40.64 by 35.56 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The award exhibits heavy wear on the silver frame and has several areas of scuffing and scratching on the glass, as well mild oxidation on the record itself, in excellent condition overall.
