Here we go again. Following up on my series of post focused on Dodgers police sets throughout the years, here are scans of the 1995 LAPD Police set. To see the other police sets I have featured go here. There are 30 cards in all, and it has been reported that 40,000 set were given away to fans as a give away during a game. Below is a look at what the reverse of the cards look like.
These cards were also given out as perforated sheets, but as you can see my cards have been machine cut. It's likely that someone received a bunch of them and had them professional cut up. BTW, these cards are very inexpensive. You should be able to get a complete from just about any year for around $5, give or take a few dollars here and there.
As I look at this set, I realized that this Dodger team was stacked. We had Piazza, Karros and Mondesi as our power bats. Chan Ho Park. Nomo and Ramon Martinez lead our starting pitching staff with an effective Todd Worrell anchoring our relievers. It's no wonder we took the National League West crown that season.
