ATHLETIC BILBAO 97/98

JANUARY OF 1998 SAW THE RELEASE OF 4 FIGURES FROM ONE OF SPAINS TOP CLUB SIDES-ATHLETIC BILBAO.

THIS RANGE OF FIGURES WAS RELEASED UNDER THE BANNER OF 'SUPER CHAMPIONS CAMPEONES LE FUTBOL'

 

THE FIGURES WERE RELEASED IN SINGLE BLISTERS AND ALSO AS A 4 PLAYER PACK.THEY WERE DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT SPAIN BY TOY COMPANY 'IDEAL' BUT ARE READILY AVAILABLE IN THE UK.

 

DUE TO THE  HIGH LICENSING FEES DEMANDED BY SPAINS TOP TWO CLUBS- BARCELONA AND REAL MADRID,CORINTHIAN DECIDED NOT TO RELEASE ANY FIGURE FROM THOSE CLUBS AND INSTEAD CONCENTRATED ON PRODUCING QUALITY SCULPTS FROM THE REST OF LA LIGA.

 

CORINTHIAN RETIRED ALL 4 OF THESE FIGURES ON THE 1ST OF FEBRUARY 2003.

 

EACH FIGURE CAME WITH A COLLECTOR CARD BUT NO COLLECTOR FILES WERE PRODUCED FOR THIS SERIES.
