COLLEGE STATION -

For the first time, 12THMAN will be available on a Texas license plate.

Texas A&M University and MyPlates.com announced they will auction the right to display the specialized license plate.

Texas A&M and MyPlates.com will hold the auction online for Aggie fans and former students.

Bidding opens Aug. 12 and ends Sept. 12.

Proceeds from the MyPlates.com 12THMAN Auction benefit Texas A&M University and the General Revenue Fund of Texas. My Plates will donate its share to the University. Texas A&M-related proceeds have supported championship opportunities for Aggie student-athletes, both in the classroom and in competition, as well as funding for the Corps of Cadets and the Bonfire Memorial.

The winner of the 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 plate has never been available before because only six letters were allowed on personalized plates in Texas until 2011. When the State made seven letters available, MyPlates.com reserved the plate message 12THMAN for auction.
