ENGLAND THEN AND NOW
Corinthian experienced great success with the 2000/01 range of 4 packs, so they released the England Then And Now 4 pack in late 2001.
The England Then And Now 4 pack took a retrospective and present look at the England national side, the current team is represented by manager Sven Goran Eriksson and team captain David Beckham.
The Eriksson is identical to the one released in ProStars Series 15 however it does have a different PRO code. The Beckham also has a different PRO code to the Series 15 release, with this version also being identifiable by the Black boots, the Series 15 version has him wearing White boots.
2 legends of England's past complete the pack, we have Bobby Moore in 1966 home kit, and the first and only ever Corinthian figure of Alf Ramsey! The figure of Ramsey was one that Corinthian were relentlessly asked to produce, and this sculpt did not disappoint.
Corinthian also produced Platinum Packs for this release, with only 50 of each being made, as only 50 of each were made they are highly sought after amongst dedicated Platinum Pack collectors, and seldom appear for sale.
The 4 pack came with 4 figures, 4 collector cards and a Wembley display stand, with the pack being priced at £10.
Corinthian produced just 5,000 England Then And Now 4 packs, which I have always fet was a relatively low number when you consider who is in the pack and that it was the only time release of Ramsey, however that limited production run have enabled the pack to retain it's collectability.
