Is there any chance we can get close up photos of what these cards look like?
Featured above is Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck with Clayton Kershaw and his LAPD Baseball card that officers will be handing out while on patrol. Like in years past, the LAPD has gotten together with the Dodgers to create Baseball cards that officers will distribute to children and families. Per Rich Mueller at Sports Collectors Daily:
If you’re a fan of police sets, those sports cards many law enforcement agencies handed out mostly during the 1980s, this will warm your heart. The LAPD and LA County Sheriff’s Department are bringing them back. A donation from the LA Police Foundation has covered the cost of printing one million Dodgers baseball cards.The photo above was taken by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2015.

- Via Matthew Moreno at Dodgers Nation, "Juan Uribe Content With Being Traded, Confident He Can Regain Form."
“I feel good about being here [with the Braves],” Uribe said when asked about his reaction to the trade. “I’m going to miss my teammates and I think I can return to form like I was before.” Uribe also said it would be difficult needing to immediately face his former team, but that it was easier than his changing teams in 2011.
“It’s not going to be as difficult as when I went from the Giants to the Dodgers. I’m looking forward to playing in front of the fans and I’m expecting appreciation from them for what I did.”
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Scott Van Slyke dealing with back issue."
"He had some back stuff going on the other day. We want to be a little careful with him," manager Don Mattingly said. "There are aspects he is available, and aspects that he's pretty much not."
