G.I.Joe Trading Cards - Search and Destroy (1993)



In 1993, Hasbro created an advertising campaign that featured several "live-action" Joes. Television commercials featured actors as Duke, Snake Eyes, Gung-Ho, and Scarlett, among others.

In addition to the commercials, scenes were turned into trading cards (and a mail-in poster. This set of twenty cards were inserted free in specially marked action figures in 1993. In addition to the twenty card basic set, four cards (M1 through M4) were made available in Marvel Comics' G.I.Joe comic book, starting with issue 135.
