CARECA SPECIAL EDITION

As it would transpire, these figures would form part of the final set of ProStars that Corinthian would create exclusively for the Japanese market, bowing out in style by producing 4 brand new sculpts, with each player being released in home and away kit.

Antonio Careca had already appeared twice as a ProStars figure, in the Reseller Specials series and also Legends of the 70's & 80's Series 1, however this would be an all new sculpt and a much better one in my opinion. 

 

 

The Brazilian forward would be painted in the highly detailed kit of J-League side Kashiwa Reysol. Production wise there are 3,500 home kit blisters made and only 2,000 away kit, no Platinum Packs were made for Careca.

Corinthian always sought to ensure any product released in Japan was made available to UK collectors, however due to licencing issues this was not always possible, as was the case here as they were not allowed to sell the Careca figures in the UK, as they were in Japan J-League kits and the licence only allowed them to be sold in Japan.

The figures were released in a very eye catching blister pack design, coming with an individually numbered collector card.
