ADOT says Suns specialty plate sales have soared during NBA Finals run
PHOENIX — Phoenix Suns fans have beefed up their support of the team during its NBA Finals run and that includes personalized license plates.
Sales for the specialty Suns plate netted about $12,000 in June, up about $3,500 from May, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
The plates garnered about $7,000 per month in sales over the previous 10 months.
The Suns began their playoff run in late May and are two wins from their first title in franchise history.
