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 ‘I Gotta Know’ a Million Seller 1961.” “I Gotta Know” was a doo-wop rhythm-and-blues style love song recorded by Elvis Presley on April 4, 1960 and released by RCA as the B-side to “Are you Lonesome Tonight?” The song itself reached #14 on the Billboard charts, while the two-sided single was one of the biggest selling singles of 1960, reaching number one on the charts. 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. The frame has just a few dents and minor scratches. Excellent condition.
