In conjunction with the state of Massachusetts DMV, the Red Sox now have authentic Fenway Park license plates up for bid. The catch. In order to win the bidding, you have to have a car registered in Massachusetts because these are real license plates.
The numbers on the plates honor some of the great Red Sox players, their league championships and world championships. The numbers available are 1-22, 24-99, 406, and 1489. The years that are available are 1946, 1967, 1975, 1986, 1903, 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918, and 2004.
It is all for a good cause though as the proceeds will benefit Kids Replica Ballpark, Inc. a tax exempt non profit organization that is licensed by The Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball with a lease from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for twelve acres of land to build a kid-sized version of the historic Fenway Park for youth baseball, softball and t-ball and to promote youth development. Funds from the Fenway Park License Plate will support both capital and operation needs.
