There is a black and white photograph of the front end of an old truck in the center of the poster with the caption, "GUESS MY AGE" in all black, capital letters. The candidate's name is split on either side of the photo, with "GRADY" diagonally slanted up to the right on the left side of the photo, and "STUMBO" diagonally slanted down to the right on the right side of the photo.The bottom gives information about the rally, printed in all black, capital lettering: "SATURDAY, MAY 14 - 6:00 pm / CERTIFIED OIL STATION / US 23 South LOUISA, KY." Under this, in much smaller black lettering are the words "paid for by Law. Co. Comm. to elect Grady Stumbo, Gov. - Pauline Blevins, Treas." To the left of this line of small text is a printer's union trademark which is partially legible and reads "Typographical / Union Label / Ash..." (presumably Ashland, KY).|

This poster was donated on December 30, 1986 by Drexel Davis. Davis, a self-described "Yellow Dog" Democrat, held several elected positions in Kentucky state government. His thirty-three years of public service prompted his interest in collecting political memorabilia.
