Nice. My guess is they wouldn't know it's an error if you pointed it out to them. That's just a guess though.
I immediately thought of mowing my lawn when I read the title, and I rarely think of that when reading pre-war card titles, so that's "something".

That was the nickname preferred by Yankee announcer Red "Barber" and the reason why the Yankees didn't hire him until 1954, after Joe retired.

It would have been funnier if the card was graded "A"

His '36 World Wide Gum card lists him as "Deadpan Joe". It's a shame that didn't catch on.
