The front and back of the trade card are exactly the same. There is a blue background with a yellow and black wheel located in between the two covers consisting of state names. In the center of the blue background, there is a bronze eagle above a red, white and blue outline of the letters U.S.A. An outline of the United States is located behind the letters U.S.A. and an illustration of a loaf of bread is located in the lower left corner. At the bottom, the phrase "Enriched Tip-Top is Better Bread" is stated in red and black lettering. The wheel has the names of the states on it. When moved so a state is at the center top, you can read the state motto, what city is the capitol, and the population of the state and of the capitol. Different states are on each side.
