Netherlands World Cup: Money In The Bank

With the Orange goal machine ripping through Brazil 2014, we take a look back twenty years ago when the USA hosted the FIFA Tournament.  Many of the great collectibles come from sponsorship and its prevalent in most enterprising nations.
Holland were sponsored by Nationale Nederlanden Bank which were visible on all their training shirts and media adverts.
One of the more significant items produced were rubber erasers with the likeness of players  from the 1994 squad. These caricatures have been prominent since the 1930's in Holland.  The erasers measure about 4 inches by 2 inches.
Dennis Bergkamp

Ed DeGoey

Ronald Koeman

Marc Overmars

Frank Rijkaard

Jan Wouters
These were the only 6 players we know to have been featured.
