Card Of The Week: Bubblegum and Championships

Since I failed to post a "Card of the Week" last week I thought I would make it up by adding some bonus cards to this weeks selection. Below is one of funniest cards to feature a Dodger player. Chan Ho Park, in this 1999 Topps Stadium Club card, is showing off his best bubble gum gem for all to see. He looks shocked it hasn't popped yet.

The LAPD police & safety sets produced for the Dodgers are probably one of the most successful regional sets ever produced. They started in 1980 and ran for over 20 years. If I'm not mistaken, cards were available directly from police officers and police stations. Were sets also handed out at games too? Below are four cards from the 1982 Dodgers LAPD set that feature the Dodgers recent World Championship win from the previous year.
