License Plates Worth Keeping? Is it okay to resell them?
« on: May 04, 2011, 06:06:11 PM »
Picked up a small unit on my lunchbreak today...lol...I got a solid wood headboard and a few other thigns but have a ton of license plates.

I know people often hang them in their garage but normally they are their old plates from places they lived.

Wondering if there's any market for random license plates? Do they sell at flea markets, garage sales, etc? I see them on ebay but its mostly exoctic places or customized plates that seem to sell.

Also, if I do sell them any issues with that? I know personally I probably woudlnt want my old plates out there, who knows if someone does a driveby or robs a bank with them. Any issues with selling them?

There is a market for them. Not sure how big a market, but it is usually the older plates. And I am not sure how much they pay for them either. I have a person that posted in CL the other day that was looking for license plates, and I have been in several restaurants with old license plates on the wall.

I think I've only sold one on eBay, and yes it was a personalized, but general enough that anyone could use it
in a rec room or workshop. Mine was something like GunStore or some such.

As I recall a message pops up from eBay when you are trying to post it giving a warning (or maybe denying it).

In California you can check with DMV online to see if a personalized plate is available or not; maybe other states too.

Do you have a Cracker Barrel restaurant near your house?
