Definitions

trophy wall rate
(Noun) Traditionally, a wall with mounted animal heads, but nowadays another meaning is perhaps more widespread: a wall, often in a politician's office, filled with photographs/plaques/awards designed to show off how important the principal is.
Usage: A State Senator's trophy wall might include a photo of him/her with a United States Senator; a United States Senator's trophy wall might include a photo of him/her with Barack Obama; but Barack Obama doesn't need and presumably doesn't have a trophy wall.
