Capt. Grid-Iron (version 1) was released by Hasbro and was released carded as part of the ninth series (1990). He was discontinued domestically in 1991.
Capt. Grid-Iron came with a a green football helmet, a clear visor (that attached to the helmet), two orange elbow pads, a green backpack, a gray missile launcher, four gray missiles (that attached to the missile launcher), a light gray shotgun, and three gray football grenades.
CAPT. GRID-IRON was quarterback of the West Point football team and graduated in the top ten of his class. It can be said in his favor that he passed up an appointment to the U.S. Army War College for a conventional infantry at the company level. It was this determination to be "where the action is" that brought him to the attention of the G.I. Joe organization.
