Posted By: <b>Zinn</b><p>Is a minor league card, say PCL, considered a "rookie" card? If so I'll answer for Bancroft...it's his 1912 Zeenut.

Posted By: <b>JK</b><p>Sorry Zinn, minor league cards are pre-rookies or "prookies" as the board refers to them. <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> Can anyone else help me, I really need to find this stuff out.

Posted By: <b>jay behrens</b><p>Since they are all HOFers, they can't be HOF cards unless they were issued after they were inducted into the HOF <br /><br />Jay<br><br>The richest person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least.

Posted By: <b>Brad Green</b><p><br />Richard:<br /><br />Most people probably consider Lefty's 1926-29 postcard-back Exhibit to be his rookie card. Others probably would consider a card like the "1932" U. S. Caramel to be his rookie card. You have both cards, so why would you really care which one is his rookie card?<br /><br />The U. S. Caramel's, however, were issued in 1933 -- not in 1932. That means that the 1933 Goudey is as much of a rookie card as the 1933 U. S. Caramel.<br /><br />There was a discussion back in 2005 as to the issue year of the U. S. Caramels.
