Secretary of State's Office Selling Cubs Plates

2011_1_26_cubs_plate.gif Sales of personalized Cubs license plates began this afternoon through the Illinois Secretary of State's office. This is right on the heels of the office's successful Blackhawks license plate sale and department officials anticipate larger sales, given the Cubs' larger fan base.

Sales of the personalized Cubs plates support the Professional Sports Teams Education Fund to benefit the Common School Fund, which supports public schools throughout the state. Chicago Cubs plates are multi-year and may be displayed on passenger vehicles, B-trucks and vans weighing 8,000 pounds or less. Plans are in the works to offer personalized plates for the Bears, Bulls and White Sox.
