The New Orleans Pelicans have provided yet another exclusive way to show your fandom while also raising funds for a good cause.

The New Orleans Pelicans have announced an opportunity for fans to place a bid on an exclusive team-branded license plate that will be available on the NBA Auctions platform starting Tuesday, October 3, 2023 (so, as you are reading this, it is already open for bidding).

The new license plate options give Pelicans supporters another way to show off their dedication to the team. The license plate features the Pelicans Primary Icon logo and colors. “This isn’t merely a license plate; it’s a statement of pride, a symbol of being part of the spirited Pelicans family. Numbers 2 – 100 will be the available numbers for fans to place a bid,” according to the team’s press release.

The bidding is set to launch on NBA Auctions, and some proceeds will go on to the team’s ongoing initiatives and endeavors both on and off the court.

“We are very thrilled to offer our dedicated fans the opportunity to own this exclusive team-branded license plate,” said Gayle Benson, Governor of the New Orleans Pelicans. “This is a way for our fans to proudly display their Pelicans pride wherever they go. The bidding process on NBA Auctions adds an element of excitement and engagement that supports a variety of Gulf Coast environmental initiatives, the original idea of naming the team the Pelicans.”

Eligible bidders for this action must possess a vehicle that is titled and registered in Louisiana. Bidding for each license plate will start at $100. Fans can start bidding on the NBA Auctions website at 11:00 a.m. on October 3, 2023. Bidding will conclude on October 24, 2023, giving participants ample time to vie for this exclusive collector’s item.
