The Rookie Card Debate

Auto Date Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

There are many different opinions as to what criteria should be used to determine what is a players rookie card.  Is it the first card ever issued for the player, the first card in a professional uniform or the first card by a major, licensed trading card company?

Take for example Mark McGwire, his 1985 Topps Olympic card is not considered a true rookie card and many of his cards issued in 1987 are.

A great discussion of this topic has been posted on the CardPricer.com blog.
