Mecum expands Phoenix auction again, expecting 1,250 cars

What was originally a two-day sale has doubled

Mecum has added yet another day to its inaugural Phoenix sale because consignor demand is so high, the company said Tuesday.

“After the initial announcement of Mecum’s newest two-day auction addition, an immediate and overwhelming response quickly led to the decision to add a third day,” the company said in a news release.

“Two months later, demand is still high while consignment space was running low. In remedy, Mecum Auctions has expanded the auction once again to now include Sunday, March 17 and accommodate 250 additional high-quality collector-grade cars.”

Mecum said it is expects as many as 1,250 cars at the sale that runs March 14-17 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona — the home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals that is about a 20-minute drive from downtown Phoenix.

The sale was announced in November at the facility, which has also hosted Super Bowls, huge concerts, and the NCAA Final Four. At the time, Mecum Auctions president Dave Magers said the company had been looking to do a Phoenix sale for a while but this was the first year the dates matched up.

Magers said the company was attracted by the area’s strong car culture and its location. The Phoenix sale will take the calendar spots of two California sales — Anaheim and Pomona.

Mecum isn’t a fixture at the recent Scottsdale Auction Week because of its annual auctions in Kissimmee, Florida and Las Vegas. In January, the company offered 7,517 lots. More than 80 percent of them sold for a total of $133.8 million.
