Description

Two, identical, color images on a "Bonus Photo" card. Each image is of a female figure posing between two male figures. The woman (identified as Sierra Bandit) is exposing her proper left breast and is holding a switchblade knife in her proper left hand. The man on the right is laying against the woman's back. The image on the left is larger than the image on the right.
