The front of the trade card features a drawn color illustration of two clowns dressed in white outfits decorated with black pompons as they toss balls between them. In the balls, each letter of the word "Tip-Top" is listed in a different ball. There is a large red, white and blue loaf of bread above the calendar squares for September 1943 to February 1944. On top of the calendar, the phrase "Is Better Bread" is written in blue lettering against a yellow background. The background of the trade card consists of purple and white bands alternating with blue bands. The back of the trade card is a plain pink color.
