Interesting! I personally think that is was just a mistake by Topps instead of the seller switching the auto but who knows for sure, right? Luckily I haven't had this problem with my Griffey autos but his autos really don't look like anybody else's! This could even make that card worth more now that it can be considered an error card! Could be a win win in the end!
