BRAZIL CRAQUES DA BOLA

Corinthian released a solitary series in Brazil, under the banner name of Craques Da Bola, which translates as 'Stars of the Ball' with the series being released towards the end of 2007.


A range which has always been problematic to acquire, given the country it was released in, couple with that the fact Corinthian never made public it was released or gave any confirmation that it had been, so as a result it went very much under the radar of most collector's.


The series is made up of 24 figures, 14 of which featured in various previously released series, using the exact same MC codes too, however it does also contain 10 figures which are exclusive to this series!
