Cleveland Indians pitcher hilariously calls out Topps after he’s misidentified as Justin Bieber on baseball card

You won’t belieb this.

Trading-cards giant Topps mistakenly referred to Cleveland Indians pitcher Shane Bieber as “Justin” on one of its cards ? then issued a hilarious response to the mix-up.

Justin Bieber, of course, is the pop star behind hit songs such as “Sorry,” “Baby” and “Love Yourself," but is not an MLB All-Star as the card might suggest.

“Is it too late to say sorry?” Topps tweeted to Shane on Saturday night, referencing a lyric from Bieber’s song “Sorry.”

Shane, 24, originally shared a photo of the erroneous baseball card to Twitter. The right-hander got a kick out of the way Topps acknowledged the mistake to him.

“Hahaha ok touché," the pitcher wrote.

The baseball card in question got Shane’s name right up top but referred to him as “Justin” in a biography section lower down.

Shane acknowledged to a fan on Twitter that he’s “pretty used to” snafus involving the pop artist’s name by now. He even wore the nickname “Not Justin” on the back of his jersey during Players Weekend last season.

But Shane is emerging as a star in his own right, having pitched to a 10-4 record with a 3.40 ERA and 174 strikeouts in 140.1 innings this season. He was named the MVP of the All-Star Game last month after striking out the side during his lone inning pitched.
