White says $25 of the fee for every Bulls license plate sold will go to the General Schools Fund. Hall-of-fame Bulls great Scottie Pippen says that makes the plate an even more special edition.
“We are really proud to be able to put it together – this license plate opportunity,” Pippen said. “We know it’s for the kids here in Chicago and the state of Illinois.”
Secretary White said this is the latest sports team plate.
“This is number 4,” White said. “We started out with the Blackhawks, and from the Blackhawks we went to the Cubs and the Bears, and now the Bulls. And we are looking forward to a conversation with the St. Louis Cardinals, because in the southern part of the State of Illinois, you’ve got a lot of Cardinals fans.”
There no White Sox license plates yet either.
Random-number Bulls plates are $69, while personalized and vanity plates cost more.
