This isn’t the first time Topps used the same card twice in the same year of Archive Signature Series. The fact that this has happened even one time leads me to believe that there was more than one person responsible for buying back cards for this release. Also, Topps either didn’t care about the duplication, or the people responsible for acquisition didn’t communicate with each other. Either way, here’s another instance where there are two “1/1s” of the same card from the same buyback set.
Update 2/3/2024: The card on the left is actually the Limited parallel, which means it’s unique to the base variety on the right.
