Orioles announce license plate charity auctions on

Auctions for World Series plate numbers 1966, 1970 and 1983 begin today at noon

The Orioles today announced a series of Orioles license plate online auctions through in honor of the club's 60th anniversary. Fans will have the opportunity to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or their favorite Orioles season with these plates, which feature the popular cartoon bird logo.

Beginning today until April 30, Maryland residents can visit to bid on license plate numbers 1966, 1970 and 1983, the club's World Championship seasons. These auctions will end starting at 10:00 p.m. that night.

Then, beginning May 5, remaining plates numbered 1955-2014 will be auctioned off by decade for one week at a time:
