      The images on these cards are taken from
      Centerfold Collectors cards and were used
      to stimulate sales of the Chromium Cover cards. 
      Jumbo Cards were also inserted in Chromium 3 
      foil boxes at a rate of 1 card in a 12 box case. 
      (1:288 packs)

Notes: Sports Time issued 500 Factory binder sets and [500] Factory binder sets were released to Playboy Catalog. This is the last set which Sports Time released before abandoning the license. Foil boxes contained 24 packs and 6 cards to a pack. An empty binder offer card was issued as a box topper. Collectors who found all 7 PLAYBOY cards were offered a four card press sheet and an entry into a drawing for an uncut Chromium 3 Refractor card sheet. Promotional cards for Chromium Card Editions 4 and 5 were printed but not released, they have turned up on the secondary market. Chromium 3 was a rapid sell out. Chromium cards have been discontinued with this edition.
