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.

As with all specialty plates, they cost $25 in an initial application fee and $25 per year to renew.

Almost 70% of all sales of the plates — $17 each — go to Phoenix Suns Charities for youth education and development, college scholarship programs and community development.

Arizona has more than 70 specialty plates.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals is on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Phoenix Suns Arena. Catch all the Finals action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
