Parthi Baba's boo-boo on Shirdi Baba

Sai Baba, who claims to be the reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba, has contradicted himself on several occasions when describing the life and times of his supposed former incarnation. The most pertinent point that amuses me is Sai Baba's discrepancy in regards to Shirdi Sai's date of birth:

"In answer to their prayers, a son was born on September 28, 1835. Today is the anniversary of that day. That child was Sai Baba." - 28.09.1990. Sathya Sai Speaks v. XXIII, p. 230

"This day [first day of Navarathri] has another special significance. Shirdi Sai Baba was born on September 27, 1838." - 27.09.1992. Sathya Sai Speaks v. XXV, p. 326

If it is possible to attribute the date error as a slip of the finger in regards to typographical mistakes, this is discounted by Sai Baba's own revelation about the year of birth.
