Subtle move by Donruss

I got this card of Danny Jackson in my trade with Rich.

It comes at the end of the 1991 Donruss set, with Danny Jackson at his press conference where he joined the Cubs. What I didn't notice right away is that the picture actually uses the Cubs logo on his jersey in the lower left corner of the card, theplace where the team logo normally goes. Here is a typical 1991 Donruss card to show what I mean.

Well, maybe not completely typical. Gotta love Jerry Browne's "Gov" batting gloves. (For those too young to remember, a different Jerry Brown was governor of California in the 1970s, hence the nickname.)
