Donruss’ Elite Extra Edition product is geared toward big league baseball draft picks, but so far the buzz surrounding the product has been about the old school basketball player whose autograph has somehow shown up on the front of a young pitcher’s card.

Panini has confirmed that Magic Johnson autographs were inadvertently applied to the cards of St. Louis Cardinals prospect Jordan Swagerty.

Players under contract to sign for card companies often apply their scribble to silver hologram stickers which are then placed on cards. It’s not clear how the Johnson signatures were matched up with Swagerty’s cards.

However, Johnson even signed Arizona State Sun Devil logo patches that were applied to Swagerty cards, creating an even more bizarre collection.
