BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH 97/98

CORINTHIAN RELEASED FIGURES FROM 6 OF GERMANY'S TOP CLUB SIDES,WITH BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH BEING PICKED AS ONE OF THEM.

 

6 FIGURES WERE RELEASED IN THE GREY KIT OF BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH,ALL OF WHICH HAVE NEVER BEEN RELEASED AGAIN.

DUE TO THAT FACT,THEY HAVE REMAINED HIGHLY COLLECTABLE,NOT ONLY IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY,BUT ALSO WITH COLLECTORS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

 

ALL WERE RELEASED WEARING THE KIT WORN THROUGHOUT THE 97/98 SEASON.

 

ALL FIGURES WERE RELEASED IN SINGLE BLISTER PACK FORMAT,ALONG WITH A 4 PLAYER PACK BEING RELEASED AT THE SAME TIME AS THE SINGLE BLISTERS. THE 4 PACK CONSISTED OF:

EFFENBERG,ANDERSSON,KAMPS,PETTERSSON

THE 2 NOT CHOSEN FOR INCLUSION IN THE 4 PACK WERE-HOCHSTATTER&WITECZEK.

 

THE 4 PLAYER PACK WAS RETIRED ON THE 1ST OF FEBRUARY 2003.

 

ALL 6 FIGURES HAVE REMAINED DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN,WITH EFFENBERG BEING THE MOST POPULAR PLAYER RELEASED IN THE SET.HOWEVER,IT IS MARCEL WITECZEK WHO COMMANDS THE MOST MONEY,AND AS HE WAS ONLY AVAILABLE AS A SINGLE BLISTER,THIS MAKES HIM A LITTLE HARDER TO FIND AND CAN SELL FOR £35 IN MINT BLISTER.THE OTHER 5 ARE NOT FAR BEHIND AND CAN TRADE HANDS FOR UPWARDS OF £20 WITH 'EFFENBERG' GOING FOR SLIGHTLY MORE.

 

 A TRULY COLLECTABLE SET AS IT FEATURES SOME TRULY FINE SCULPTS,NOTABLY THE 'KAMPS' FIGURE WHO IS SCULPTED WITH AN 'EARING' AS CORINTHIAN NEVER USUALLY ADDED THE JEWELRY TO THE FIGURE.

 

A PERSONAL FAVOURITE OF MINE IS THE 'HOCHSTATTER' PURELY FOR THE SHEER SIZE OF HIS HEAD,IT IS SIMPLY MASSIVE AND WEIGHS A LOT TOO.
