For a $40 fee (extra $94 if you want a vanity plate instead of a random number). $25 of the fee goes to the Professional Sports Teams Education Fund (which benefits public schools)

Seriously? I have had a Sox plate holder for more years than I can remember, never had a problem, nor have the many people I know who have one. People I know who have vanity plates that are obviously White Sox oriented have never had problems.

I have seen many cars with the Cub plates and none of them look like they have been vandalized.

Agreed. Despite the assurances by others that they've been fine with Sox stuff on their car (even in Cubs territory), I'm still worried this would be a vandalism magnet.

Sure, the same could be said for someone with Cubs plates or other Cubs stuff getting vandalized by some idiot Sox fan, but that still doesn't lessen the concern for me. Plus, I'd hate to have my wife driving my car and have to deal with someone tailgating her or cutting her off because they're idiots and want to mock the Sox plates somehow. I know a lot of people have Sox stickers and frames, but IMO the plates will really stand out at first and catch people's eye because they're so new and unique.

I've been waiting for this one for awhile. Too bad it does me no good. It only allows five letters for vanity plate, which means my current vanity plate won't fit on there. Bummer. I guess I'll just have to get a nice frame. That's definitely cheaper than getting reamed by the state an extra 27 bucks for the annual renewal fee on top of the vanity renewal fee.

I ordered mine "MR SOX" on Aug. 25 and received them on OCT. 13th.

I called the Secretary of State's office and spoke with a lady about the design of the plate. I brought to their attention that the stripes on the top of the plate where missing. (the stripes on the sides of ILLINOIS as it had on the website and just like the bulls, hawks, bears and cubs plates all have.) They said it was an error and they are just going to keep it without the stripes and they changed the picture on the website with out the stripes.


I also ordered another set of plates "MS SOX" for my wife while on the phone with Debbie from the Secretary of State's office. She said she can get me those plates in 10 days via special order.
