DENVER, Pa. – In response to numerous requests, Morphy’s is moving all of its auctions to weekend timeslots. The first of the company’s sales to make the changeover will be Morphy’s Weekly Auctions. Previously held on Tuesdays, they will now be conducted on Sundays, starting with the March 23 Advertising & Toy Auction.

“Our Weekly Auctions held on Tuesdays have been extremely popular with collectors, but many of our regular buyers have told us they would love to bid in these sales but can’t, primarily because of work commitments,” said Morphy Auctions CEO Dan Morphy. “Moving the Weekly Auctions to Sundays will open the playing field and enable many more bidders to take part.”

Ordinarily, Morphy’s conducts one Weekly Auction per month for each of the following categories: Toys, General Antiques, and Advertising & Toys. The auctions include items that may have missed a consignment deadline for one of Morphy’s Premier or Specialty Auctions. In other cases, consignments may represent antiques or collectibles that their owners prefer to sell quickly rather than waiting for the next major auction.

As for Morphy’s Premier and Specialty sales, they will be held exclusively on Saturdays and Sundays, starting with the April 26-27 Advertising & Coin-Op Auction.

“All one-day Specialty and Premier sales will continue to be Saturday events, but any two-day Premier sales, which traditionally have been held over a Friday and Saturday, will now be scheduled as Saturday/Sunday auctions,” said Morphy. “We’re eliminating all weekday sales completely.”

No change will be made to Morphy’s standard 9 a.m. start time. Also, all auctions will continue to offer multiple forms of bidding, including live in the gallery, by phone, absentee, or live via the Internet through Morphy Live, Invaluable or LiveAuctioneers.
