Best Answer

A rookie card is the players first year of cards, whether or not it is his rookie season. Players may have one or dozens of rookie cards, depending on how highly touted he was as a youngster and in which year his rookie card was issued. In most cases the card does not read "Rookie card" on it, and cannot be identified this way. A "rookie card" is generally applied to a player's first appearance on a Baseball card of major card manufacturers like Donruss, Fleer Upper Deck, or Topps. To find out what year a rookie card is for a particular player you will have to check with a price guide. Price guides like Beckett, and Tuff Stuff denoted rookie cards with either a R or RC by the player's name. The notation XRC is used if it was released in an extended or limited set outside of the regular issued set of the major company. Most often once a player was drafted and prior to a player's first major league appearance.
