    1970 Colonel Parker Trophy for Elvis Presley Summer Festival.
    Colonel Tom Parker was Elvis Presley's manager from the dawn of his rise to stardom until his tragic death some two decades later in 1977. His pioneering innovation in talent management might have been the single greatest factor in marketing of Elvis to the world and maximizing the revenue he generated.

    The loving cup style trophy on sale here was presented to The Colonel after a series of concerts, called Elvis Presley's Summer Festival, at the International Hotel in Las Vegas from August 10 to September 7, 1970 where Elvis was commanding $125,000 per week, a staggering sum at the time. It was this festival which formed the basis of the 1970 documentary, "Elvis: That's The Way It Is."

    Circular black base has a wrap-around gold plate reading "Elvis Summer Festival." Above sits a large gold colored cup with ornate handles inscribed "To Colonel Tom Parker in honor of a supreme promotional effort, unequalled even in lustrous Las Vegas...International Hotel September 7, 1970." Size: 16.5" high. Weight: 14 pounds, 3 ounces.
