These cards were among the first in a project in which Donruss/Playoff unveiled a show-exclusive program. At the March 2002 Chicago Sun-Times Show, if a collector opened a box at the Donruss/Playoff booth -- they received a card from what Donruss/Playoff called the "Chicago Collection" and stamped each card with a commemorative "Chicago Collection" gold foil logo on front. Donruss/Playoff created a limited amount of singles from selected products and sequentially numbered each card to 5. The cards were distributed on a strict product-specific basis. For example, collectors who opened 2002 Donruss packs or boxes in front of a Donruss representative were be rewarded with the appropriate number of 2002 Donruss Chicago Collection cards sequentially numbered out of 5. Likewise, attendees who opened 2001 Playoff Contenders packs or boxes received the appropriate amount of 2001 Playoff Contenders Chicago Collection cards. Due to scarcity, no pricing is provided for these cards.
