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?
I remember when I was a kid, @kcpolice used to hand out these #Chiefs players cards to us in the community. pic.twitter.com/UMLLhHMz7m— Fat D Slim (@Prollyurdaddy) July 6, 2017
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.
