Well about the closest ive come was a complete set on a Jazz BAe146-200...
There was five seats in the row and i think the cards went Air BC, Jazz orange, Jazz green, Air Nova, Air Atlantic.... Atleast they got the BAe146 part right (by the way the plane was in the red Jazz colours...)

Until early 2000 Condor used to operate two different versions of the 757-200!
There were 18 aircraft in the fleet, 17 of them with a 6 door and 4 overwing exit layout (these were D-ABNA, NB, NC, ND, NE, NF (Rizzibird), NH, NI, NK, NL, NM, NN, NO, NP, NR, NS and I´m no longer sure if we had a NG or NT), and just one with a 6 door and 2 additional jetescapes behind the wing version, which was bought from Air Holland! This was D-ABNX, just called THE X-Ray by everybody!
Now you could count on that they frequently wanted to load the regular Safety Instruction Cards on the D-ABNX!
You always had to check what cleaning/ground service brought when they did the cabin cleaning in FRA!!!
I remember one flight being delayed because we had 100% wrong Safety Cards!
This aircraft was later sold to Icelandair where it now flies under the registration TF-FIW!
It was leased back for the summer season 2000, already in Icelandair colors, but operated for Condor, with Icelandair pilots but Condor cabin crew!
I worked that operation for 8 weeks in the spring of 2000! Was a lot of fun! The very same crew flew together for the entire 8 weeks!
Other than that, I have to say that I`ve never seen a wrong safety card on any flights neither on duty, deadheading nor private!

I recieved a UA 722 safety card on a UA 721 back in the mid-1980's. Oh well, so there isn't a full size exit door a few rows behind my seat. . .heck, if something happened, I would have made way for the rear exit, errrr, lavatory door to save my life! Important? Nah. . .that toilet room would've saved my life. . . . .just spread some of that blue stuff on me. . .I'm good.
"I was given an IL96 safety card from an Aeroflot TU-134."
Slight difference there. . .just a little though. . .just tuff it out.
Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

Ah yes, the 75X, I remember that one, Dirk.
At that time, there was another 757 version in use: NY and NZ, called "75V".
These two had 208 seats (as opposed to 213 in NX and 210 in all others), same exit configuration as NX, but the life vests were under the seats: in NX, they were over the seats, so a third safety card version for the 757-200 was needed. I used to think to myself that whoever was responsible for matching the three different 757s to the three different safety cards must have had a tough job

I have many times found wrong safety cards on KLM's 737s... very often 737-800 safety cards on 737-400s and sometimes even safetycards of 747s. Also SAS has quite frequently wrong safety cards on board of their aircrafts and sometimes LH too... At last year I found the safety card of B737-200 on LH's B737-500 even they haven't used the -200s for years!
Actually if aircraft has even one wrong safety card on board it isn't airworthy. If there will be inspection by local Civil Aviation Adminstration and they find wrong safety cards, it will be grounded until those safety cards are replaced.

This summer I asked a friend who was flying to Armenia for an Armavia safety card.
He flew on an A320 (ex-Ansett) which was recently leased by the airline. Surprisingly when I got my safety card, it was that of Ansett! Quite interesting since that particular A320 was parked for about 2 years till finding it's new owners and the old safety cards were not removed from the plane.

Haven't had this particular problem - but I've seen safety videos for a B737-400 on an Air Berlin B737-800, which I didn't find all too thrilling (especially because of the information about how to use the overwing exits which is somewhat different on these two planes).
Mentioned it to the crew and got a "Na und? Wen interresierts?" (translation: So what? Who cares?") back...
True, not too many people actually watch those videos, but I still think that the video should correspond with the actual plane...
