“We are truly excited to make available to the market these three rare single-character license plates by auction for the first time” said Steve Farrar, President of My Plates.
The auction is now active and bids are being accepted. Texans wishing to bid can register at http://www.MyPlates.com/auction. The auction will close on February 28th, 2018.
My Plates First Single-Digit Auction dates:
- Begin Bid Date: Thursday, 02-01-18
- End Bid Date: Wednesday, 02-28-18
The winning bidders of these rare license plate messages, “3”, “8” and “J” will own the right to their plate pattern for 5 years, with first dibs on renewing it at the state’s everyday pricing. That means once the message is won at auction, it may not become available to the market for a long time or even could be gone forever!
Unlike other Texas license plates, plates sold by My Plates at auction are legally transferable. The plate owner then has the right to sell the plate message to another person with the same ongoing rights or gift it to a family member or friend. Transferability also means these plates could make great investments.
