 Platinum Pack:

 Here is a single blister pack from Prostars Series 38. Corinthian continued to use the generic style backing card for this release.
 
This series was produced in very low numbers, with Manchester United's Argentinian Carlos Tevez being produced in the most numbers, with 3,629 blister produced.

 The figure produced in the lowest quantity is Craig Bellamy, with just 1,115 blister manufactured.

 In total Corinthian produced just 22,689 blisters for this series, which was considerably less than previous series.

 Corinthian did not produce a collectors information file to accompany this series.

 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.

s38 platinum

 Here is a Platinum pack from Prostars Series 38.

 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.

 Platinum packs are seen as Corinthian's premier collectors product and were not available for direct sale. The only way to get these Platinum packs was buy spending a certain amount with Corinthian on thier products.

 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.
 
 Corinthian did not let lightening strike twice, ensuring that these Platinum packed figures did indeed have Platinum painted bases.
 
 The most sougt after Platinum packs from this series proved to be Carlos Tevez, Fernando Torres and Bacary Sagna, with Maicon also in great demand.

Collector Cards

s38 card

 Here is a collector card from Prostars Series 38.

 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.
