Spot the mistake

My son was showing me his Cubs baseball cards this morning, and I immediately noticed something was wrong with this Mike Fontenot card. Can you spot the mistake?

For one thing, Mike Fontenot is a left handed batter, and in this picture he appears to be following through on a right-handed swing. For another thing, he has Ryan Theriot's face.

I realize that they're both little guys who played middle infield at LSU and have scruffy unkempt facial hair, but really...

Does this mean the card is worth more?
