      Under most circumstances, throwing a snowball/ender pearl/egg/what-have-you copies the item's NBT data (name, lore, custom model data). However, if the item being thrown is the last in the stack, then it just throws a regular projectile.

      Steps to Reproduce

      Grab yourself a single snowball and rename it.

      Toss it out.

      Run the command "/data get entity @e[type=snowball,sort=nearest,limit=1] Item"

      Behold the given error message.

      Now, repeat the process with two or more snowballs. Throw exactly one snowball, and repeat the command. Behold the snowball's delicious item data.
