An orange bumper sticker printed with black text advocating Carl Stokes for Mayor of Cleveland. The sticker reads [STOKES] bold black letters. Information on the Stokes for Mayor Committee is in small print along the bottom of the bumper sticker. In the bottom PR corner is a stamp, mostly illegible, likely a printer's union mark identifying at what shop the sticker was produced. The back of the sticker is covered in a waxy paper over the adhesive, which bears the manufacturer's logo.
