"Houston" draws top-dollar at Great Plate Auction

“Houston” draws top-dollar at Great Plate Auction

 

“A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet,” but Shakespeare might be amazed at the price a vanity license plate might bring for names like “Rockets,” “Texans” and “Bentley.”

The Great Plate Auction helped close out the 30th anniversary of the Houston Autoshow, with the “Bentley” plate selling for $10-thousand dollars, the “Rockets” tag going for $16-five, and the name plate for our hometown, “Houston,” set an all time record-high of $25,000.
Auto-dealer, Chris Gillman, made the winning bid, which displaced the previous record-high price of $15,000 for some car you may have heard of…”Ferrari…” Lowest winning bid for the lot of ten vanity plates: $1,500 for “Phantom.”

MyPlates.com says the grand total raised in the auction was over $65,000.
