Description

Extremely hard to find Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits banners on original string

Two exceedingly rare 11 x 28 satin banners, one red and one gold, for ‘Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits, Vol. 1’ and ‘That’s the Way It Is.’ Coinciding with Elvis’ month long residency at the Las Vegas International Hotel in August 1970, RCA Records and Colonel Parker made sure that “ELVIS BIG 50” banners were prominently displayed throughout the hotel property. In fact, they can be seen in the documentary of the August concerts, Elvis: That’s the Way It Is. A highly desirable item, as is the accompanying banner touting Presley’s 1971 Summer Festival dates at the International, another month-long stand. These banners were originally double-sided. Each individually framed to an overall size of 15.5 x 33. In fine condition. Extremely rare and highly sought after by collectors! RRAuction COA.
