Just wondering if anyone can provide proof of this.

Looking around ebay at all the folks buying "rare, errors" and this one seemed like it may actually be true.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=50264&item=5969113582&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

They say that on the card back it is spelled "Grievous's Bodygaurd" instead of "Grievous's Bodyguard". The A & the U are in the wrong place making it a misspelling.

Anyone have reliable proof if this is true or not? I think its interesting!

EDIT: Proof does exist. In the sirstevesguide database, the picture of #12 Palpatine does indeed have a spelling error on it:

I bet al do, does anyone have a corrected version? It reminds me of the Gold Stripe Yoda and Chian figure, where on the back it listed Ashla and Jempa as Yoda and Chian.

Kidhuman, funny you mention that, it remind me of the "Saelt Marae/Saelt Marie" spelling mistakes on the POTF2/Freeze Frame figures

...and the Queen Amidala (Naboo Celebration) with "Dorme" on the back!

Another one that was an error but never changed was the black astro droid with the force files. He had a spelling error on the card and for the life of me I never saw the correct spelling version.
