The image of Albert Einstein sticking his tongue out is probably one of most ubiquitous (and memorable) photos of the Nobel Prize-winning physicist. For decades, it has papered the walls of middle-school science classrooms and college dorm rooms. But now, someone has purchased the real thing for $125,000.The autographed print was sold Thursday (July 27) by the Los Angeles-based Nate D. Sanders auction house to an unnamed buyer.The picture had been taken after Einstein’s 72nd birthday party at Princeton University on March 14, 1951.

As the story goes, Einstein stuck his tongue out at a group of photographers who were trying to get the scientist to pose for them as he left the party. Photographer Arthur Sasse of the wire service UPI got the lucky shot.

Einstein himself was a fan of the photo and even asked UPI for nine prints to use as personal greeting cards, according to the auction house.Most of the prints were cropped to include only Einstein’s face, but the 7x 10-inch print that was sold this week offers a slightly more extended view, showing Einstein between Frank Aydelotte, an English professor and head of the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton University, and Aydelotte’s wife, Marie Jeanette.The print is even signed by Einstein along the left margin, “A. Einstein .51.”Prints, letters and other memorabilia associated with Einstein often draw high bids at auctions. Earlier this year, someone spent nearly $54,000 on Einstein’s 1953 written response to a physics teacher who seemed to have questions about the theory of special relativity. An Einstein-inscribed Bible was sold for $68,500 in 2013. And a 1939 letter Einstein wrote to a New York hat merchant who helped Jews escape the Nazi regime sold for $12,500 in 2014.

End Live Science story.

We have had great luck with our scientific billionaire clients, that we have even sold 6 scientific Nobel Prizes, a world record for an auction house.  One Nobel Prize award sold for almost $800,000.  Here is the write-up from CNBC (also an example of the great press we receive):

Yet another Nobel Prize has gone under the gavel.

Dr. Alan Hodgkin’s 1963 Nobel Prize sold for $795,614 by Nate D. Sanders Auctions on Thursday. The award, which Hodgkin received for his work on the central nervous system, is one of only 13 to go to auction.

Hodgkin and colleague A.F. Huxley used nerve cells from a giant squid to study electrical impulses at a cellular level and ultimately, greatly impacted modern neurology.

The Nobel Prize is made of 23 karat gold and sold with a letter of authenticity from Hodgkin’s daughter.

Several other Nobel Prizes have been auctioned in the last year. Physicist Leon Lenderman’s award sold for $765,000 in May (also by Nate D. Sanders Auction House).
