SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- St. Louis Cardinals fans can now show their loyalty on Illinois license plates.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced Tuesday that plates with the bird-on-the-bat Cardinals logo may now be ordered. White unveiled the red-and-blue-lettered plate last month at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

The plates are available for order on the secretary of state's web page . Fans may order a random number, personalized or vanity plate. Delivery takes about six weeks after the order is placed.

A random-number plate costs $69 for a vehicle that is titled with a valid Illinois registration. Personalized and vanity plate costs vary.

Each purchase and renewal of a Cardinals plate raises $25 for the Professional Sports Teams Education Fund and supports public schools in Illinois.
