GO GO SOX

The only way to get GO GO SOX was in a lottery. Jesse Felix is a Chicago White Sox fan. He got this plate in 1984, the first year that Illinois offered seven-letter plates. He had to enter a drawing to get them from the Secretary of State. He pointed out that "it looks good in 1993". The White Sox are Division Champs as of this writing, and their chances to go all the way look good.

We take our sports seriously in Chicago. I just read in the Inc. column in the Chicago Tribune that ten thousand Chicago Bulls license plates will go on sale in early October 1993 for $100 each. Secretary of State George Ryan hopes to raise $1,000,000 for Little City (a local home for the mentally handicapped) from the sale of the plates. Inc. said "So who gets No. 23?" "We'll find out who wants to pay more," said the ever practical Ryan. The plates will be in the Bulls' colors and will carry the team logo.

Not all sports plates cost extra or are difficult to get. I found many "garden variety" sports plates. We experts categorize "garden variety" plates as plates that anyone could buy with no surcharge or special requirements. That is, other than the normal extra cost of a vanity plate.
