COVENTRY CITY 1996/97

For the 1996/97 season, Coventry City had a further 8 figures released as part of the FAPL Collection, although 4 of those were mere repaints of the figures previously released in the 1995/96 kit.



The 4 figures which were previously released are Dublin, Ogrizovic, Ndlovu and Burrows, These figures were painted in the new season's kit, which was a mid blue and navy vertical stripe shirt, with navy shorts and mid blue trim, the shirt sponsor was still Peugeot.


The Ogrizovic figure had a new jersey and this time the colour was Yellow but the sculpts for all these figures remained the same. All these 4 are rarer than the 1995/96 versions, with Ogrizovic and Burrows being rarer than the other 2.



Of the other 4 figures that made up this set, only Salako had previously been released and then it was in the England national kit, the head sculpt was the same for both figures but Corinthian changed the body pose for the Coventry City release.



The remaining 3 figures are all first time sculpts, all of which have never been released by Corinthian again. The sculpt of Eion Jess was very basic but an accurate one, the other 2 were far more interesting. Marques Isaias was released complete with his little goatee beard which even felt rough to the touch.


Completing this line up is Kevin Richardson, another who was released sporting facial hair, this time in the shape of light blonde moustache. Both Isaias and Richardson are considered rare but by no means as hard to find as others in the FAPL Collection.


All figures were released as a single blister pack, coming with collector cards and a collectors information file.
