CLUB GOLD
WORLD GREATS SET E

In February 2001 Corinthian launched the 2001 version of the Corinthian Collectors Club, with the membership packages containing exclusive product which was not available in any retail store, and it was not possible to purchase the World Greats from Corinthian direct either, they were only available as part of the membership package.

 

As was the case with the 2000 package, there were 3 different levels of membership which were Silver, Gold and Platinum, with different figures available in each level of membership.

 

There are 4 Club Gold World Greats figures which were included in the Gold membership and made up Set E, including one player which was only released by Corinthian once.

 

Despite his playing career and popularity, Ally McCoist was only released by Corinthian once, and it was as part of the Club Gold World Greats Set E, with him painted in Scotland home kit. He was sculpted to be released back in 1996 for Rangers as part of the SFL Collection, however that figure was cancelled.

 

Upon release of the set, many collectors will have been forgiven for thinking this was the first release of Abedi Pele, however he was first released in the Headliners Star Kickers range for German Bundesliga side 1860 Munich. The 1860 Munich figure has always been a very rare and hard to obtain figure, so this World Greats figure in Ghana kit gave all collectors a much easier way to add him to their collection.

 

The other 2 in Set E had both been released before, with Ian Rush having been released for Liverpool and Leeds United in the FAPL Collection, and Liberian international featuring for AC Milan in the Headliners Superstars range and also in ProStars series 2.

 

All 4 were released in a Club Gold World Greats window box, on a Gold base and coming with collector card
