Popularity and value of Albert Einstein autographs

Albert Einstein was one of mankind’s greatest minds, and a man whose ideas changed the way we understand the universe. Almost everything we understand about modern physics can be traced back to his groundbreaking work, and he will be remembered in the same manner as Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Galileo.

His most important work took place in 1905, when in a few remarkable months he wrote four scientific papers which would change the world forever. His revelations included his Special Theory of Relativity, proof of the existence of the atom and a description of the photoelectric effect which remains the basis for modern quantum theory.

Few men have had the same effect on human history and development as Albert Einstein. In 1999 Time Magazine voted him the ‘Person of the Century’, and as our understanding of theoretical physics grows the importance of his legacy becomes clearer each year.

This legacy means his autographs and memorabilia is highly sought after by collectors. According to the industry’s PFC40 Autograph Index the value of his autograph has risen from £1,750 to £6,950 since the year 2000, an increase of 297.1%.

Collecting tips

Prices for Albert Einstein autographs can vary considerably depending on the item. Simple handwritten and signed typed notes usually start at around £3,000, but this price can rise significantly if the note contains detailed scientific content. Letters in which he mentions his famous equation E = mc2 are highly prized and can sell for £30,000 up to several hundred thousand pounds.

Signed photographs are also popular with collectors, and can sell for between £6,000 to £10,000 depending on the image. A signed copy of Einstein’s most famous photograph in which he sticks out his tongue sold by the company RR Auction in 2009 for $74,000.

It is vitally important for collectors to buy from a reputable dealer which guarantees the authenticity of its autographs. Companies such as Paul Fraser Collectibles offer lifetime money-back guarantees, which are far more reliable than certificates of authenticity. These certificates offer little or no recourse for buyers, compared to money-back guarantees.
