Actually it was 1948 --guy made a typo-- that dang card hung in the old man's shack my entire life!  

Old man was 11 when he worked that station, and on St. Patrick's day AND the day after what would turn out to be my birthday.

Unless it was my grandfathers card, but I don't think he ever held a "standard" or modern callsign.

Actually, I think that probably was a standard call sign format at that time too.

Yes, it's probably a typo.  I date things 1999 all the time!  I think you should assume the date to be correct and the card to be your grandfather's.
