Worldwide Auctioneers has purchased part of the long-standing Atlantic City Auction from G. Potter King, Inc, assuming ownership of the event’s premier catalogue auction, traditionally limited to a smaller number of high end automobiles.
“As our company continues to expand, we are delighted to have completed this acquisition of one of the most significant auctions in the Northeast. It is an outstanding venue and a great destination for collectors,” said Rod Egan, Principal of Worldwide Auctioneers and also the company’s Chief Auctioneer.
“We look forward to building upon the very strong foundation laid down by G. Potter King over the years and to augmenting our existing annual schedule of strategically located sales with another great catalogue event to service our clientele,” Egan continued.
Set against the backdrop of one of the nation’s foremost casino cities, the Atlantic City Collector Car Show & Auction has been drawing crowds from across the United States since 1973. Worldwide will present its new auction over the President’s Day Weekend on the evening of Saturday, February 19, 2011, at Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal Hotel Casino, with consignments limited to 80 hand-selected automobiles.
“We have observed the growth of Worldwide over the past few years with great interest and are excited to watch them take this auction to its next level. We will be there to help and offer our expertise wherever pertinent,” said partners John Chiara and Jay Silberman of the Atlantic City Classic Car Show & Auction. The latter is scheduled to run from February 18-20, 2011, at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
The Atlantic City Auction will expand an annual schedule which also includes the Houston Classic Auction and the Auburn Auction, this year scheduled to run from September 2-4, 2010, at Worldwide’s U.S. Headquarters in Auburn, Indiana.
