Vanity Plate "12THMAN" Sold For $115,000
Plate breaks the U.S. Record for license plates sold by a state
A license plate honoring Texas college football sold for $115,000 in an online auction Thursday. The plate reads "12THMAN", a phrase referring to the strength of A&M's football fans and features the A&M logo on the left side. The entire plate is colored in the school's colors -- maroon and white. The winner of the auction, Tony Buzbee, plans to give the plates to a decorated veteran and A&M graduate.
"I'm not saying who it is yet, but I see him as a 12th Man to our country," Buzbee told ESPN. "He did a lot more than pay a hundred thousand dollars for a license plate."
The recipient of Buzbee's gift will have the plate for ten years and will have a chance to renew the plates afterwards. The plates are also fully transferable.
