    Great question!

    What is the definition of a rookie Card?
    Just the very first card released? Or all Cards of first year?

    A good source for checklists sorted by players would be very useful,
    does anybody an idea where to find?

    Great start, really appreciate your list!

    Maybe we should add the Name of Set the Card/ Sticker was in.

    Like Matthäus Rookie is from 1981, Panini Bundesliga, #320

    Can you get pictures of those rookies? That would be helpful addition,

    thanks a lot for starting such an overview!

    I will try to find some information, I sure Henry and Eto`o had earlier releases.
