Bidding For Texas A&M ’12th Man’ License Plate Up To $35,000


COLLEGE STATION, Texas, (UPI) —  Bidding on a Texas license plate for Texas A&M football fans, honoring the “twelfth man,” has been up to $35,000, the bidding website says.

The auction will end Thursday at noon on the maroon and white license plate reading “12THMAN,” a reference honoring the fans supporting the team.

The university is partnering with the website, and the proceeds will benefit the school and the General Revenue Fund of Texas.

The winning bidder will be presented the iconic plate at Saturday’s game in College Station, Texas, between Texas A&M and Alabama, and can hold the plate for 10 years, after which it can be renewed or sold, the San Antonio Express-News said.
