With the announcement that the State of Illinois would be offering Chicago Cubs license plates, a number of diehard Cubs fans will finally be able to show off their fandom just north of their bumper. And Cubs fans aren’t the only ones taking advantage of the program. Bleacher Nation has learned that a number of current and former Cubs have already availed themselves of the ability to create personalized Chicago Cubs plates – and we’ve got the plates to prove it.

Alfonso Soriano:

Carlos Marmol:

Jim Hendry:

Carlos Zambrano:

Ryan Dempster:

Kerry Wood:

Fernando Perez (kidding, of course – we’re chums now):

Geovany Soto:

Lou Piniella:

Sammy Sosa:

Moises Alou:

Ryan Theriot:

Milton Bradley:

Mark Prior:

Dusty Baker:

And even a couple non-Illinois residents want Cubs plates (for whatever reason).

Mark McGwire:

Tony LaRussa:

h/t to Sons of Ivy for the idea.

    Love the plates. I can figure them all out but Soriano’s. Maybe his should be “E7”

    • Ace

      Ha, nice. Should’ve thought of that one.

      (and it’s thanks for cash, for what it’s worth)

      • pfk (Peter F. Kempf)

        Ahhhh, got it. Thanks

    Ryan Theriot: SUHWING or SCRAPPY
    Kosuke: CRKSCRW
    Fergie: INYREAR

      Nice. I was hoping folks would toss out their own. I like the Fuk one. Couldn’t come up with one short enough for the plate (All Your Outfielder Are Belong to Us just doesn’t translate to 7 characters).
