This series contained no redemption figure tokens, instead the redemption figures were made available to purchase in sachet format at £5.00 each, or free if you purchased a case assortment.
This was the first series release of Lionel Messi, so the blister of him has become very much sought after and a real collectors piece.
Here is a Platinum pack from Prostars Series 33 Stars of the Season 2005/06.
These packs featured the now established backing card design as first seen in Prostars series 15, with the figures themselves also having the bases painted Silver, to further enhance the collectability of these very limited packs.

The Platinum packs also featured individually numbered collector cards, which meant each blister was unique, with no more than 360 produced of each Platinum pack.

Here is a collector card from Prostars Series 33 Stars of the Season 2005/06.
Corinthian changed the appearance and layout of the collector cards from series 21 onwards. They continued to use the same quality, high gloss card but made a change to the back of the card.
Corinthian now printed how many of each blister pack had been produced and also stamped each collector card with a unique issue number. This made each blister pack unique and meant collectors went chasing the low numbered blister packs with the ones stamped 0001 being the most coverted and indeed the most valuable.
From the card opposite you can see the changes made to the cards and how they differ from those used in the early Prostars series. The top box contains the players name, club and the figures collector number. The figure image of course dominates the card and the series box can found next to the figure.
