Description:

This framed RIAA Certified Gold Sales Award was "Presented to RCA Records to commemorate the sale of more than 500,000 copies of the RCA Records Long-Playing Record Album 'Welcome to My World'" by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). This album was a compilation released in March of 1977, just months before Elvis' death in August. The compilation album of previously released tracks charted as well as the recent newly-recorded albums. The album was certified gold in September of 1977 and quickly attained platinum status just a few years later. This framed display features a gold-colored record above a gold-colored plaque, both mounted against a black backing with gold-colored wood frame, indicating a late-1970s issuance of the award. The framed award measures 20 3/4 by 16 3/4 inches (52.70 x 42.54 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The award is in excellent condition overall with the label of the album possibly re-adhered.
