    RCA Television Sets

    On this photo Elvis is awarded a RCA TV for selling so many million records in his first year with RCA. Which year was this presented to Elvis and how many records was sold for this TV set?

    Now would you call that TV the most expensive TV set?
    Not much of a reward from RCA.
    Yes it might be the same set he shot when Robert Goulet was on.

    The set was top of the line in 1960, but it does seem a bit cheap when you consider 50 million in sales since 56. Not to mention what seems to be a very bad history of keeping track of his sales in those years. I wonder how many more he actually sold from 56 into the mid 60s which are not accounted for except for profits to RCA.
