Description

Two, identical, color images on a "Bonus Photo" card. Each image is a close-up of a man in a mask. The mask is of an older man with large nose (identified as President Lyndon B. Johnson). The man in the image is also wearing a hat with a blue band around the bottom and red and white vertical stripes. The man is also wearing an apron over his suit. The image on the left is larger than the image on the right.
