CUBBIES license plate message to be auctioned

There can only be one CUBBIES plate in Texas and it will be sold during the auction!

Making October even more special for baseball fans, three of the oldest and most famous names in baseball could now be your official license plate message on the streets of Texas! My Plates will auction 50 select, highly sought-after license plates during their next Great Plate Auction. Most have never before been available, with grand –slam worthy messages like “CUBBIES”, “DODGERS” and “YANKEES” up for grabs.

The name CUBBIES, evokes the Friendly Confines, the bleachers, Harry, and the North Side. The DODGERS is LA, Brooklyn, a host of championships and the curse of the Billy Goat. And who can forget, YANKEES, the most famous of them all, the Babe, the traditions and the pinstripes.

These three truly unique one of a kind plate messages are being offered for the first time in Texas, where all license plates have to be unique, there can only be one on the streets of Texas. Hence, only one Cubbies, only one Dodgers and only one Yankees. This is your chance to secure a piece of baseball history in Texas.

My Plates are offering a number of other team related plate messages including: GO SPURS, GO IRISH, VIKINGS, HUSKERS, BUCKEYE and SPARTAN.

All of the plates within this auction have an opening bid of only $500 with no reserve beyond that. If no other bids are received before the auction closes, the opening bid would be the final and winning bid. “We wanted to open this auction up for all Texans to have the opportunity to secure one of these great plate messages” said Steve Farrar, President of My Plates.
