LEEDS UNITED 2000/01
Corinthian experienced great success with the 1999/00 team packs, however the feedback from collectors was that there was a little too much product released at once and from too few teams, so Corinthian addressed this by releasing 10 different 4 player packs, with their release being just in time for Christmas.
The Leeds United 4 pack contained David Batty, this was the same sculpt as first seen for England in Series 7, joined by Gary Kelly which was the same sculpt as released in the FAPL Collection ,both figures being in Leeds United 2000/01 home kit,
Manager David O'Leary and midfield enforcer Olivier Dacourt made their ProStars debuts, with Dacourt being in away kit, both would make further appearances in the ProStars range.
Corinthian also produced Platinum Packs for this release, with only 90 of each being made, the vast majority of which went to Beatties stores, so finding them now in good condition can be a difficult task, as they are more often than not yellowed from sun damage. As only 90 of each were made they are highly sought after amongst dedicated Platinum Pack collectors, and seldom appear for sale.
Each 4 pack came with 4 figures, which were a mixture of home and away kits, the first time Corinthian had done this, 4 collector cards and a Elland Road display stand, with the pack being priced at £10.
Corinthian produced just 2,673 Leeds United 2000/01 4 packs, the second fewest in the 2000/01 4 pack range. As this was the first ProStars multi pack Corinthian had released for Leeds United, they were unsure on how much demand there would be so kept production tight, however it was a near sell out upon it's release!
