MVC Knocks it Out of the Park with Major League Baseball Plates
(TRENTON) – Highlighting the three World Series Champions of the tri-state area, Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Chief Administrator Raymond P. Martinez today announced the sale of license plates that honor three great baseball teams: the New York Yankees, the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies.
“Since these are three of the most recognizable and popular teams in baseball, I believe the plates will be a huge hit with vehicle owners,” said Martinez. “Having just come off of a great 2010 season now is the perfect time for baseball enthusiasts to order their plates before spring training begins.”
The MVC is offering the Major League Baseball (MLB) license plates through the mail with order forms available online at www.njmvc.gov/sports or at any one of the MVC’s 42 agencies. Plates are $60 for an initial purchase with an annual renewal fee of $60. Personalized plates are also available for purchase. Revenue generated from the sale of the plates will go to the state’s General Fund.
MLB plates are the latest line of sports license plates available to New Jersey vehicle owners. On Oct. 20, the MVC unveiled its line of NASCAR-themed license plates. There are 10 driver plates to choose from, as well as a NASCAR fan plate and a Hall of Fame plate that honors the late Dale Earnhardt. The MVC also recently announced the sale of plates honoring NBA favorites the New Jersey Nets, Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks, as well as NHL greats, the New Jersey Devils. In the coming weeks, the MVC plans to announce the sale of NFL-inspired plates.
“The sale of sports plates is a win-win for the state as it allows fans the unique opportunity to show their pride while providing another valuable source of revenue,” added Martinez.
The Yankees have won the World Series more than any other franchise in baseball – 27 times. The Phillies and the Mets are both two-time World Series champs.
