DALLAS (AP) - A Texas A&M “12THMAN” specialty auto license plate has been awarded to a Houston resident for a record winning bid of $115,000.

Kim Drummond with Austin-based My Plates says bids stalled at about $42,000 at 11:45 a.m. Thursday. But a bidding war ensued that shot the price upward by the noon deadline.

My Plates, the state customized license plate contractor, auctioned off 10-year rights to the plate. The winner can renew rights to the plate after 10 years for $795.

The previous record for a specialty plate was a bid of $25,000 in January for “HOUSTON.”

The winning bidder for 12THMAN was not immediately identified but will be presented the plate during the Texas A&M-Alabama game Saturday.
