SAN ANTONIO – Proud Texans, Spurs fans and other drivers who want to show off their personalities and goofy sides can now bet on a variety of license plate messages in the “Great Plate Auction."
MyPlates has 50 customized license plates up for grabs, with a starting bid of $500, from now through 8 p.m. Oct. 21.
Many have yet to be released to the market before, the company said. They are offered on a five-year term and buyers can transfer them to relatives or friends, or sell them in the future.
“We wanted to open this auction up for all Texans to have the opportunity to secure one of these great plate messages,” said Steve Farrar, president of My Plates, said in a news release. “We believe the auction list has a little bit of something for everyone to get excited about.”
License plates in the auction range from two to seven characters — which have never been released before.
Some plates that may catch the eye of San Antonians include YEE HAH, 1 SPUR, PARDNER, HAN SOLO, TEXA5 or TEJAS.
