I ordered mine (paid $25) when I bought my tag in Feb 2007, at that time I was the 15th person to signup.

If remember correct, there needed to be 1,000 plates ordered by between 1/1/07 and 12/31/08, or the tag would not be manufactured.  I donít think that we even came close to 1,000. I assume that Iím still on the list.

Nothing to envy, you and I have just as much chance to get one as they do. Which is ZERO.

Sounds about right, its basically dead as far as I know.  Unless they are taking money again for this year, looking to get to the 1,000.

yeah, but I was never refunded the $25 and the Atlanta Falcons Foundation has never been removed from the tag options

yep, I remember that it was a non refundable fee.  The OP might be in for a surprise,  he might be thinking that his payment will actually get him a GA DMV Falcons tag.

Negative, the $25 was supposed to be refunded by the state if the tag was not going to be manufactured.

My local tag office told me that it was like throwing money into a pit, "the state never refunds that money...I wouldn't do it" was what I was told by my local tag office.

That was my understanding.

I hope this finally happens, but I'm doubtful unless you see a place to sign up at training camp, the scrimmage at Brookwood, Roam the Dome and at home games.  That's the only way I see enough people becoming aware.

Once I paid for the tag my email response said I would get the tag by november and I also got a pregame side line pass for the Charger preseason game. Not to bad.
