The front of the trade card begins at the top with the title "Know Your States of the United States of America" written in a yellow box in the top left corner. The background consists of the Statue of liberty plus a moon and starts against a dark blue color. Between the two covers, there is an adjustable wheel which stops on a state's name and nick name and shows population, state capitol, flower, or what the state is noted for. The front and back of the trade card are the same besides for the separate block of information printed on the card about Alaska on one side and Hawaii on the other side. There is a loaf of bread in the lower right corner. At the bottom, the phrase "Enriched Tip-Top is Better Bread" is stated in red and blue lettering against a yellow background.
