Notes:There were 1000 binder sets made for Playboy. In addition Paradigm released 1200 binder sets and 100 Premium sets. There were 10 months between the release of the September set by Sports Time and the release of the October set by Paradigm, in February/ March of 1998 Sports Time lost the license from Playboy; for several reasons, in part due to the delay in release of the October set, the poor sales of the Chromium cards, a change in direction of Sports Time management, and over-production of the previous editions. Not all Jumbo cards were auto- graphed.
