Help making sense of this card I just got

Help making sense of this card I just got
I just received this card in a 2 card lot I got off blowout and it makes no sense. This card has purple coloring, auto is in red ink and says it's a 1/25 on the front. In the beckett he has 2 cards that are purple for this year, one is a red ink that's supposed to be a 1/1 and the other says purple and is supposed to be an /24. I can't locate a /25 print run for him for this year so I'm stumped. My scanner sucks but the purple is in the hall of fame portion of the card. Any help or advise would be appreciated!

? Looks like the database has an error. If I'm remembering right, this is actually a 2013 card. The FFMI is in the database, but as you said...#24. Again, think it's an error on Becketts part but what do I know.

There is also an asterisk next to it in the db they might not know for sure

numbering is right: you see this in football all the time with press pass:

there are 25 total cards in the print run. there are 24 purples, one red. the red is the first in the print run. this is what the asterix denotes

congrats....yours is a 1/1

This could also be an error or inentional
He may have been signing all day a and getting tired towards the end of the day and include that with his age. He may have grabbed the pen to sign this one. You could have an actual 1/1 red sig even though its a 1/25.
Either way its a nice card from a HOFer
