Jeter, Griffey, Longoria...who knows?

For as much as I hate intentional gimmick cards, I enjoy a good old fashioned error card. I'm not really sure how I missed this one way back when Goudey dropped, but I just got word of this card this morning.

The Evan Longoria card from Goudey has an interesting error, considering it interchanges two of the most popular players in all of baseball: Ken Griffey Jr. and Derek Jeter.

On the bottom of every Goudey card, there is a cut-out of either Griffey's or Jeter's head along with script text stating "Ken Griffey Jr. says" or "Derek Jeter says." However, on the Longoria's card, there is a picture of Jeter, but the text "Ken Griffey Jr. says."

How this error went unnoticed is hard to say, but it doesn't appear that it will be corrected or is short printed.

Interestingly, the mini Longoria cards all say "Derek Jeter says..."

I think that all of the A.L. players except Derek Jeter has Derek Jeter says with his face and the N.L. has Ken Griffy JR. says with his face except Ken Griffy JR., witch Derek Jeter has Ken Griffy JR. face and Ken Griffy JR. says and vice virsa.
