Default O/T The concept of a non-sports "rookie card"

Does this make sense only in the sports context, or is it reasonable to call a musician/actor/other historical figure's first card a "rookie card" as well?

For instance, this 1971 David Bowie, or 1972 Michael Jackson.

There are countless examples, many of which are truly hard to find.
