Corinthian introduced the Collector Club Special Edition range and gave collectors an added incentive to join the collector's club. Corinthian had these figures priced at £10 for non members and £5 for members, this incentive to join the collecotr club paid off for Coritnhian, as they many more collectors join the club.

The range consits of a total of 32 figures, with over half being in away kit. The figures were released in set intervals, with 2 figures being released a month, starting in Ferbuary 2003 and concluding in May 2004. Each figure was released as a single blister pack and came accompanied with an individually numbered collector card. Corinthian also produced Platinum packs for all figures in the range.

Both sides of North London were represented in June's release as Liam Brady for Arsenal and Glenn Hoddle for Tottenham Hotspur were both released in away kit. July's release came from Italian club Sampdoria, with Graeme Souness in home kit and Ruud Gullit in away kit. A return visit to North London was made for the August release, with Kazauki Toda being the Tottenham Hotspur figure and Francis Jeffers chosen for Arsenal, both relased in away kit.

2 England national players made up September's release, with Wayne Rooney in away kit and Jermaine Jenas in home kit.
