Maybe the most coveted license plate in the entire state of Texas is up for auction at myplates.com right now and for a mere $30,000 plus you could be the “12THMAN” for the Texas A&M Aggies.

Myplates.com and Texas A&M are auctioning off the one of a kind official vanity plate which has the A&M logo with “12THMAN” as the 7 characters.  After just 27 hours of bidding the price for the coveted official plate has sits at $30,500 dollars as of 9:30am (CT). The bidding continues until September 12th, two days before the Aggies host defending the National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide. The winner of the plate will be presented the customized plate before the game in College Station.

The plate has never been available before because only 6 letters were allowed on personalized plates in Texas until 2011. When 7 characters were made available My Plates reserved the plate knowing it would be of high demand.

According to a press release from My Plates, this is the one and only “12THMAN” license plate and could be the last time the characters are released to be officially used.

The auction proceeds will benefit Texas A&M University and the General Revenue Fund of Texas. My Plates is donating their share to the University.

The winner of the auction will receive the plate for 10 years with the first right to renew after that 10 years. The winner may also sell or transfer the plate if they choose so.

Texas law prohibits anyone other than an auction winner from My Plates from transferring license plates.

Before the “12THMAN” auction started the highest 7-letter personalized plate sold in Texas was “HOUSTON”. That plate went for $25,000 at auction.
