Remember the Chiefs cards the KC police used to give out?

I’m not sure if they did this in other cities but in Kansas City growing up I remember the police department handing out sports cards to kids, specifically Chiefs and Royals player cards. I’m sure I have a Gary Gaetti Royals card at my parents house somewhere. I remember the Royals cards more than the Chiefs cards for some reason but this tweet sparked my memory pretty good. Remember these cards?

Do they still do these? I haven’t been playing kickball out in the street lately with cop cars driving by so I don’t know. If you have old ones or if they still do this, shoot us a comment below. (Update: Yes they do!)

I can’t figure out the exact year on some of those cards but Carlos Carson was with the Chiefs until 1989 so it seems these cards would be that year or before.
