An autograph that at least one man is attributing to St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has a glaring error — a reference to a Bible verse that doesn't actually exist.
A reader identified as "Chad" recently sent a photo of an autographed baseball to Deadspin with a message that included what he said is Wong's signature and the scriptural reference "Psalms 3:16" under it.
But there's only one problem: the verse in question isn't in the Bible, as the third book of Psalms only contains eight verses.

It is unclear whether this is the day the baseball was signed — or if the autograph is even authentic.
