Founded in 1969, MLPCA is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to the license plate collecting hobby. Our members research, collect, display, photograph, buy, sell, trade, and talk Michigan license plates.
We meet twice each year for license plate swap meets. Our bimonthly newsletter includes articles on historical Michigan license plates, photos from our members’ collections, and exclusive buy-sell-trade opportunities not advertised to the general public.
Our Michigan license plate gallery is always growing, and is a fun way to start learning about Michigan license plates.
If you like what you see, why not join us?
Doors open at 9 a.m. sharp, with parking lot trading beforehand. Free doughnuts, hot dogs, coffee, and soft drinks available.

The 2023 edition MLPCA souvenir plate depicts a freighter passing beneath the Blue Water Bridge. Thanks to MLPCA Secretary Steve Miller for sharing the image!
