The front of the trade card features a red, white and blue loaf of bread with the center cut out in order to put the appropriate month of the year 1950 in there. The title "Enriched Tip-Top is Better Bread" is written below the loaf of bread in white lettering against a blue background. The back of the trade card is filled with a list of Holidays and the dates for that year, a cardboard stand, and a loaf of bread in a red, white and blue package. There is a box above the loaf of bread that states "Buy the loaf in the red, star-end wrapper....Fresh daily at your food store" in blue lettering. The original envelope is also included. On the envelope, the company's name and address are listed in the top left corner, a prepaid postage stamp is in the right corner and in the lower left corner the phrase "Please do not bend" is written in gray lettering.
