Seahawks license plate no. 00001 being auctioned for charity

An online auction is now under way for Seahawks fans looking to get Seahawks license plate n. 00001, featuring the team logo and a "12" flag.

The auction, which began today and runs through Saturday, will benefit Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll's A Better Seattle, an initiative working to reduce Seattle area youth and gang violence by forging partnerships that generate opportunities for at-risk youth to take control of their lives and strive for better futures.

"This is a cool opportunity to show your Seahawks' pride and support A Better Seattle's work in our community," said Carroll in a press release.

Seahawks license plates no. 00002 - 00025 were auctioned off earlier this fall to benefit non-profit, InvestED. Over $109,000 was raised. License plate no. 00012 went for over $42,000.

The new Seahawks plate, as well as a Sounders license plate, was unveiled in May at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

The cost of the new plate is $67.75 for a car or truck with $28 of that going to support InvestED, if you purchase a Seahawks plate, or the Washington State Mentors and the Association of Washington Generals if you purchase a Sounders plate.

Both license plates became available Jan. 2.
