Im November 2019 führte Christies in New York die Auktion American Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Acrobat von Elie Nadelman zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von USD 125.000 (€ 113.440) und damit 56% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Elie Nadelman auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Horse im Mai 2012 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 842.500 (€ 681.414).
