COLLEGE STATION (CBSDFW.COM) – In just over 27 hours of bidding, the Aggies-inspired ’12THMAN’ license plate has now become the highest-priced plate ever sold in Texas.

As of 8 a.m. Wednesday, the bid had reached $30,500, surpassing the plate “HOUSTON”, which fetched $25,000 in January. According to MyPlates.com, 250 people have registered interest in the auction.

The online auction ends at noon on Sept. 12, 2013, just two days before the Aggies host Alabama at Kyle Field. As a special honor, Texas A&M will present the plate to the auction winner in front of nearly 90,000 fans during the game.

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

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

Since Nov. 2009, Texas has sold more than 156,000 My Plates, raising more than $18.4 million for the general revenue fund, which helps pay for services for all Texans.
