Texas A&M to auction exclusive license plate
No one has ever had 12THMAN on an official Texas license plate. Now for the first time, Texas A&M University and MyPlates.com will auction the right to display the one and only 12THMAN license plate. Aggie fans and former students can register your interest in the MyPlates.com 12THMAN Auction at www.myplates.com/12THMAN.
Texas A&M and MyPlates.com will hold the auction online.
Bidding opens Aug. 12 and ends Sept. 12 – two days prior to the Aggies’ SEC showdown with defending national champion Alabama at Kyle Field.
Proceeds from the auction benefit Texas A&M University and the General Revenue Fund of Texas.
The winner of the MyPlates.com 12THMAN Auction wins this plate for a 10-year term, with first dibs on renewing the plate after that. The winner also has full rights to transfer or sell the plate to someone else.
“The 12th Man tradition at Texas A&M dates back to 1922 and signifies the loyalty and selfless service that is embodied by Aggies everywhere,” said Texas A&M Senior Associate Athletic Director Jason Cook. “As a special honor, we’ll present the 12THMAN license plate to the winner in front of nearly 90,000 fans during the Texas A&M vs. Alabama game Sept. 14.”
