An Upper Deck error

I was looking at the back of Marc Pisciotta's 1994 Upper Deck Minors card and noted it said he was born in 1965, which would have made him 29 years old that year, pretty old for a minor leaguer.

Well I looked him up and it turned out he was born in 1970. So who was born November 18, 1965 in Beaumont, TX? Pitcher Mark Petkovsek, who was also in the Pirates system in 1993. I bet Upper Deck had an alphabetical list of Pirates minor leaguers and switched the info on Petkovsek and Pisciotta.
