ROUND 2 AND MECUM AUCTIONS ENTER INTO LICENSING AGREEMENT
SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 04/28/2023 – Round 2, LLC is excited to announce it’s partnering with MECUM Auctions for
the production and sales of 1:18th die-cast, 1:64th die-cast, model kits, and slot cars. The first release set for Winter 2023 will feature a fan favorite in Auto World TRUE 1:64th scale. Round 2 will follow up with this initial release by expanding the license into our other product lines in 2024.
MECUM Auctions was founded in 1988 by Dana Mecum. The company’s first auction was held in Rockford, Illinois, and was originally intended to be a one-time event. Due to some complications with the first auction, Dana held another the following year. He would then go on to hold an auction every year after. As of 2017, MECUM sells more than 15,000 vehicles and holds 14 events annually across the U.S.
With a rich history of vehicles that have been sold at MECUM Auctions throughout the years, we’re thrilled to be bringing so many iconic cars to our product lines.
