MANCHESTER UNITED 2002/03
Corinthian experienced great success with the 2000/01 4 packs, so it as of little surprise to see them release a new set of 11 different 4 packs, just in time for Christmas, with the official release date being 11th November 2002.
The Manchester United 4 pack contained Ruud Van Nistelrooy in 2002/03 home kit, with Rio Ferdinand and David Beckham in away kit, and completing the pack is Paul Scholes in 2002/03 third kit, all sculpts had been previously releases by Corinthian.
Corinthian also released the 4 figures as single blister packs, in club specific packaging, these blisters were not available to order from Corinthian Direct, you could only pick them up via the Manchster United club shop.
Corinthian also produced Platinum Packs for this release, however they did not state how many of each were produced, they were all issued with the generic collector card saying no more than 360. My personal thoughts are it was no where near that amount, given their relative scarcity I feel the actual number would be certainly half that, given how the 2000/01 4 pack platinum packs were 90 of each.
Each 4 pack came with 4 figures, 4 collector cards and an Old Trafford display stand, with the pack being priced at £10.
