Michigan License Plate Collectors’ Association

1912 Michigan license plate

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.

MLPCA Newsletter

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?


MLPCA holds license plate swap meets every spring (April) and fall (September).

Watch this space for our next announcement, or contact club secretary Howard Cutler at secretary@mlpca.org.
