Topps 2010 Update Oddity

Ok readers,
I'm reaching out with an oddity for some help. I busted open a regular pack of Topps Update from  Wally World, and while checking my excel checklist, noticed I'd already gotten card US-320, but in a different form?
Any help with what's going on here is greatly appreciated. Anybody ever seen two different cards with the same number?
The pack contained this card:

But I had gotten this card out of an earlier pack:

The only difference I can see is the logo in the bottom right corner on the back of the card. The Senators card has the Cooperstown Collection logo on it.

Thanks for reading, hope you can help...
Have a GReat day.

Congrats you have gotten a short print! THe last couple of yrs Topps has been sharing the card number of a current superstar with a related legend from the past. The Mauer is the base card and the Walter Johnson card is an SP. I have no idea how rare the SPs are, but they are typically significantly hard to find, but not impossible. I would guess that they are scarcer then relics perhaps on par with an auto.

I'm gonna have to go through my cards, because I could have sworn I pulled a similar old time player...maybe it was Yogi Berra? Not sure, but now I know it is most likely a SP.

Yep...SP fun.

I had the same thing happen to me. The veteran player that I pulled though was Dave Winfield. I don't recall off hand who the player in the set is and number, but it is pretty cool to have pulled the Winfield.
