Default 1999 Skybox ERROR 1/1 Card? Look?! OMG!

I pulled this card out of a pack when I was younger, but apparently in 1999, according to Skybox Premium, Delino Deshields and Rafael Palmeiro were the same person. Notice the Skybox Premium logo out of whack on the error card. This was a definite correction since I have both cards. Any idea on how many may be around and value? Haven't seen any others...Thanks!

You forgot "MOJO" "SICK" and "HARPER TROUT" in your title.

Doubt the cards are worth much. Maybe if the players were Ripken and Griffey someone would pay $5-$10.

On a serious note I would say that is a printing error and not a true error/corrected card. With the name and logo being so off on the error they probably had the sheet out of whack in the printing press and didn't notice it.

As to value if you find a collector of Palmeiro you may be able to squeeze $5 out of them.

No, go after a DeShields collector, you'll get $6.50.
