The Kansas City Royals and KCP&L are excited to announce the new Cops Are Topps baseball card program.

The two organizations created special Kansas City Royals Topps baseball cards to give to police officers, firefighters and EMS. Designed to encourage positive relationships in the community, each card will feature photos of various Royals players on the front, while providing important safety tips on the back. Cards are packaged at random and in sets of four. Children are encouraged to ask uniformed officers for cards when they are not in emergency situations.

To launch the program, the Royals will visit the Kansas City Police Department South Patrol Division on Thursday, May 25 and deliver baseball cards. Former Royals outfielder Jim Eisenreich will be on hand to meet the officers. He played for the Royals from 1987 to 1992 and appeared on a card when the Club produced the previous card series.

The Royals will also highlight the launch of the program on Friday, June 2 when the team hosts the Cleveland Indians at 7:15 p.m. Before the game, KCP&L volunteers will pair up with KCPD uniformed officers to pass out baseball cards at the entry gates at Kauffman Stadium. During the pregame ceremonies, KCP&L representatives will be on-field to present an oversized, autographed baseball card to law enforcement officers.

Police Officers, Firefighters and members of EMS can apply to receive an allotment of cards at www.royals.com/copsaretopps
