Anyone who’s anyone is wishing Giants legend Willie Mays a happy birthday.

"The Say Hey Kid" turns 90 on Thursday.

The long list of celebrity well wishers includes San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Rapper Lil Wayne, President Barack Obama, ex-Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully, Al Roker of TODAY, and sports Hall of Famers Derek Jeter and Wayne Gretzkey.

Speaker of the House and long-time San Francisco Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi also chimed in on Thursday afternoon, tweeting a heartfelt birthday message along with a photo of herself and a Giants legend.

The problem is, her photo was with the wrong Willie.

She's pictured with Baseball Hall of Famer Willie McCovey, not Willie Mays.

The picture appears to be with Pelosi, McCovey and his wife, Estela, at their wedding in August 2018.

McCovey died a few months later on October 31, 2018.

Twitter users were quick to point out the long-time San Francisco lawmaker’s mistake before the tweet was deleted and replaced with a photo of Pelosi and the actual Willie Mays, drawing praise from social media.

Calls to Pelosi's office for comment were not immediately returned.
