AJAX 96/97

CORINTHIAN TEAMED UP WITH THE DUTCH NATIONAL LOTTERY-STAATSLOTERIJ,TO RELEASE FIGURES OF PLAYERS  FROM THE DUTCH EREDIVISIE.THE TOP 3 TEAMS WERE CHOSEN,WITH AJAX BEING ONE OF THE TEAMS SELECTED.

 

THE FIGURES WERE RELEASED IN STAGES,OVER TWO SEASONS.8 WERE RELEASED IN THE 96/97 STRIP,AND 4 IN THE 97/98 KIT.

ALTHOUGH 'JOHN VELDMAN' IS LISTED IN THE 1999 YEARBOOK AND VARIOUS CRV GUIDES,HE WAS NEVER RELEASED ALTHOUGH A MASTER MODEL OF HIM WAS MADE.

 

THESE FIGURES WERE  RELEASED IN SINGLE SEALED STAATSLOTERIJ SACHETS.NO COLLECTOR CARDS WERE PRODUCED FOR THESE FIGURES AND NO INFORMATION FILES WERE PRODUCED EITHER.

 

THE ONLY FIGURE FROM THE ENTIRE RANGE NOT TO BE RELEASED IN THE STAATSLOTERIJ SACHET WAS 'WINSTON BOGARDE' WHO WAS ONLY AVAILABLE IN CLEAR SACHET FORMAT DIRECT FROM CORINTHIAN.THAT BEING SAID,1 STAATSLOTERIJ SACHET OF WINSTON BOGARDE DOES EXIST!

 

ALONG WITH THE SINGLE SACHETS A 4 PLAYER PACK WAS ALSO PRODUCED WHICH INCLUDED-      F.DE BOER, R.DE BOER, BLIND, WITSCHGE.

IT WAS NOT THE NORMAL CORINTHIAN STYLE 4 PACK,INSTEAD IT WAS A BACKING CARD,WITH PLASTIC WRAPPED OVER THE FIGURES.

 

 All of the figures in this set sell for between £3-8 with the sealed sachet going for a little more.

 

The 'Winston Bogarde' figure however is a different story all together. He is amongst the rarest of all the headliner figures and is seldom seen for sale due to the fact he was pulled from the original range and only available direct from corinthian. When he does appear for sale he usually sells for £30+,a true collectors item and a fine sculpt too.

CORINTHIAN LATER RELEASED 4 MORE AJAX FIGURES,THIS TIME PAINTED IN THE KIT THEY WOULD WEAR FOR THE 97/98 SEASON.

 

Out of the 4 figures released only Michael Laudrup was released again. Dani and Juan sell for around £5 each with Laudrup and Babangida going for between £10-15.
