Dodgers Police: 1980 Set

If you were a fan of the Dodgers in the 80's then you probably remember these sets. Beginning in 1980 the team got together with the police department, the LAPD, to produce special sets featuring the team. The ran for two decades, and remains one of the more popular police/ safety sets ever created. Cards could be gotten directly from officers throughout the southland.

They are not rare at all, and represent one of the better deals to had when collecting the Dodgers from this era. If you pay more than $5 bucks for a set then consider it a rip-off. In fact, you can probably get a lot of 3 to 5 sets from different years at one time for $10 to $20 bucks- or less. Below is what the reverse looks like. Each card has a different Baseball tip on them.Over the next several weeks and months I will scan each one of the sets I have and post them here. Go ahead a click on any of the pics to enlarge.


  1. Fantasic! Thanx a milion for sharing and posting scans.

  2. My father worked for LAPD in the 80's and these cards bring back memories. I have 13 complete sets of the 1980 Dodgers, 2 complete of 1981, 6 complete of 1982, 23 complete sets of 1983, and 13 complete sets of 1984. I'll have to look into selling them . . .
