The card fronts featured a piece of watercolor artwork depicting an automobile from the past, with its model name superimposed in hand-lettering; this was surruonded by a white border along the card edges.
Card backs gave the card number and the set name, then the card title and a paragraph about the automobile in question. Most of the card back was taken up with a second image of the car, this one in red-and-blue 3D anaglyph format.
Many of the images on these cards were taken from a tobacco card issue from 1911.
Owing to the 3D picture on the card backs, six pairs of 3D glasses were packed inside each box of this set; the retailer was urged to give a pair to any young consumer who purchased at least four packs of the series at one time.
The set price does not include the glasses.
