Summary:
Front depicts two boys, one standing, wearing a hat, and holding the ankles of a boy with a blue shirt. The boy with the blue shirt has his hands on the ground, so that the pair look like a wheelbarrow. The verso mimics a reward poster, offering $500 to anyone who can find a better root beer than Raser's.
