Elvis Presley RIAA Awards from the 1992 Graceland Redesign
The following seven RIAA Gold and Platinum Record Awards are a special offering to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Graceland's redesigning of Elvis Presley's racquetball court/trophy room. Only recently has the court been returned to its functional glory as a court, but in 1992 it was covered floor to ceiling with Elvis' Gold and Platinum awards. At that time, Graceland sought to update to their Awards for Elvis' various singles and LPs, many of which had achieved Gold and even Multi-Platinum status and many of which had never even been certified! The offered grouping of awards emanate from that same period and were produced with the copies that ended up on the walls of Graceland. This is the first of several offerings from this group of RIAA awards. 

Offered is an RIAA Double Platinum record award for Elvis Presley's 1957 single "Jailhouse Rock", released in September 1957, it was finally certified Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum on March 27, 1992. “Jailhouse Rock” was a huge hit for Elvis, and after its release on September 24, 1957, it topped the U.S. And U.K. charts for weeks on end—it was the first song to ever debut at #1 on the U.K. charts. The song was recorded among other tracks for the film Jailhouse Rock on April 30, 1957 at Radio Recorders Hollywood Studios. The award's plaque reads "Presented to Elvis Presley to Commemorate the Sale of More than 2,000,000 Copies of the RCA RECORDS Single Record 'Jailhouse Rock'". The award measures 21 x 17 inches and presents with little to no wear. Near Mint to Mint condition.
