Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White says an Illinois license plate featuring the St. Louis Cardinals will be sold in support of public schools.
The plates with the Cardinals “Birds on Bat” logo will be available for purchase after Labor Day. Fans will be able to order random number, personalized or vanity plates.
The license plate was unveiled Thursday by White at Busch Stadium prior to the Cardinals’ 8-0, 1-hit drubbing of the Chicago Cubs.
White says that the plate offers an opportunity for fans to express pride for their team, while supporting public education in Illinois.
