COLLEGE STATION (CBSDFW.COM) — A number of Aggies embrace Texas A&M’s 12th-Man tradition at football games, but only one will win the right to put “12THMAN” on his license plate.

The university is teaming up with to auction off the rights to the one-of-a-kind plate. The auction begins on Aug. 12 and lasts one month, ending just two days before the Aggies host Alabama at Kyle Field.

The highest bidder will own “12THMAN” for 10 years and have the first right of renewal thereafter.

And unlike other Texas license plate messages, the plate will be fully transferable, meaning the owner can legally sell it at any time or transfer it among other family members.

The plate is expected to be the most expensive vanity plate ever in Texas. An auction for the plate “Houston” fetched $25,000 in January, the highest total ever in Texas.

All proceeds of the auction will benefit the Texas General Revenue Fund and Texas A&M University.
