September 2013 marks the 10th Anniversary of the Registry of Motor Vehicles Special Plate program, established by the legislature as an opportunity for charitable organizations to raise funds through a dedicated license plate.

In recognition of the anniversary, the MassDOT blog is sharing the story of some of the nearly 20 special plates over the next two weeks.

To sign up for a special license plate today, please visit www.MassRMV.com

To learn more about all plates in Massachusetts, please visit http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/Portals/16/docs/manuals/PassengerPlatesManual2012.pdf

NOTE:

Effective December 31, 2013, the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is no longer able to issue or renew Mini-Fenway Park plates due to changes in a licensing agreement with Major League Baseball.  If you have any questions, please contact the Special Plates section at 857-368-8031.

Today’s highlighted plate: Mini Fenway Park

License Plate: Mini Fenway Park

Year Plate Established: FY 2007

Number of Plates on the Road: 1,358

Funds Raised for Charity: $ 228,244.00

Several years ago the #11 Fenway Park License Plate was presented to John Henry in appreciation for his donation of the Fenway Park License Plate Series to support the mission of our nonprofit organization, Kids Replica Ballpark, Inc. to build and operate a kid size replica of Fenway Park for children of all abilities.

Dedicated Mini Fenway Park volunteers completed the collection of the first 1500 required license plate applications through a booth at Fenway Park and on redsox.com that put the Fenway Park License Plate into production.  State Street Corporation hosted the Fenway Park License Plate Auction at the State Street Pavilion. The #1 Fenway Park License Plate was sold for $31,000 to Jim Holzman of ACE Tickets.

Plans for a statewide marketing of the Fenway Park License Plate have been put on hold pending the commencement of construction of the replica ballpark.  A number of obstacles have delayed the actual construction of the replica ballpark.

However, the Mini Fenway Park volunteer team remains committed to its mission and continues to make progress.  The team is very grateful to everyone that purchased a Fenway Park License Plate and renews their registration.  Your support helps make a difference for our dream come true.
