As of September 11th at 5:35pm, the highest bid for the 12th Man license plate was $35,500. So bidding for the one of a kind plate is counting down to close at 12pm on September 12th. Kim Drummond says she expects a flurry of bids to hit right before the auction ends. She says most of the bids also came in when the auction started.


Drummond says they grabbed at the chance to make the plate when the laws changed.


"Texas went to having 7 letters and numbers on a license plate because for

33 years, you could have only 6."


She says whomever wins will win also an investment property and they can sell the plate if they wish.

Neither do they have to get new plates for ten years ... though they still must pay the annual registration fee.
