Hasbro bought Milton Bradley in 1984, ending 124 years of family ownership. In 1985 Hasbro and Milton Bradley created the Commando Attack Board Game. In 1986 they created this trading card set featuring painted package art from G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero figures, vehicles, playsets and accessories and stills from the G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero cartoon.
There are 192 cards and 12 stickers total. Eight cards and one sticker were included in each pack. Evidence has been shown that each pack had the exact same assortment, so if you bought two packs with the same card visible through the blister, you can expect the same card and sticker assortment in those two packs. Although these cards are marked as Series One, Series Two was never released in the US.
These trading cards are extremely popular on the secondary market, largely due to the unadorned packaging artwork painted by Hector Garrido for Coleman, LiPuma, Segal & Morrill, which handled Hasbro's G.I.Joe packaging design and illustration from 1969-1989.
The G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero cartoon was co-produced by Marvel Productions and Sunbow Productions. Sunbow's staff wrote scripts based on character and vehicle designs provided by Hasbro, then artists at Marvel Productions drew storyboards based on these scripts. Animation for all 95 episodes was outsourced to Toei in Japan, along with the 1987 feature, G.I.Joe: The Movie. The art shown below was storyboarded by Marvel Productions and illustrated by animators at Toei.
