1. When did you start collecting?
I started collecting back in 2000, when Blokker released figures of the Dutch national team. I already had some 1996 Feyenoord headliners, so then I started looking to complete my Feyenoord team. I came across the Tetley figures and then I realized there were many more!
2. Why did you start collecting?
As stated above, I was trying to complete my Feyenoord team.
3. Which was the very first figure you purchased?
It's probably Jean-Paul van Gastel (Feyenoord). His name is Jean-Paul and not Jean-Pierre as stated in the Corinthian CRV Guide.
4. What is your all time favourite Corinthian figure?
Kennet Andersson, due to its rarity.
5. What is the most you have ever paid for a single figure and which figure was it?
I don't really remember. Most rare figures I swapped. I never paid a ridiculous amount of money, but sometimes I had to offer a lot of rare duplicates in order to get the figure I wanted.
6. What is the best bargain you have ever picked up?
Papin France White Away Redemption for just £1.
7. Which figure did you most struggle to acquire?
Luis Figo POR041 Portugal National Headliner. It was the last figure I needed to complete my Headliners collection.
8. How many figures do you have in your collection?
Nearly 4000 different figures.
9. If Corinthian did decide to make some more figures, which player would you most like to see made?
Willem van Hanegem (Feyenoord 1970).
10. Do you have any comments you wish to make about my site?
