Notes: Another in the long history of delayed release card sets. You would figure that by now Stellar could figure out how much lead time to give a release, even if they are dealing with unco-operative sources. OK, enough griping. The good news is that the set is worth the wait. The artwork is incredible, the models are Playboys cream of the crop, truly stunning women, many images we have not seen before. Cards have images on fronts and backs. Card quality meets the high standard we have come to expect from Playboy and Stellar. One chase card is mis-numbered--the 11 of 12 Anniversary card is numbered 10 of 11. There are no unique binder set cards. Coallation was excellent.

The distribution of autographed cards is a little different with this release. First off there are more of them than usual. There are several box toppers, any of three of the four jumbos may also be in boxes as box toppers. (The Cabal card is only a case topper). The Patti McGuire card was late as was the Donna Edmunson, they were inserted as extras in boxes. The McGuire card is a standard size card but is not in foil packs. It is found at the bottom of boxes in a hard case with a Stellar Collectibles seal. All of the autographs have a "Autograph Signature" stamp and have different artwork from the other cards. Watch for the Patti McGuire autograph card to develop into a key card.

To be honest I had expected this set to be kind of ho-hum as most of the women featured have already been on cards, but this set has enough new material to keep you interested.
