The front of the trade card features a black and white drawing of two or three boys and one girl poking their heads through a die cut wooden fence, while another boy reaches through a different hole and reaches for the Armour ham that one boy holds. A package of Armour bacon is on the ground, and a child's wagon is nearby, labeled Armour Bacon. The company logo is in the upper left corner of the card, reading Armour & Co. Packers Chicago. The back of the card features the same scene, but viewed from the opposite of the fence. In addition to seeing child's heads poking through the fence, there are two boys wrestling over a can of Armour Vegetole.
