At the time it was considered his Topps rookie card. It wasn't until a few years later that most corrected their error.

Default When did the rookie card phenomenon start

A small wrinkle: I grew up on Long Island in the 70s, attending card shows, visiting the nascent shops, and doing in-person deals through the Pennysaver, and I seem to recall paying a premium for MVP/Cy Young-year cards before rookie cards became a thing...

The MVP's got popular after the 1975 subset honoring the 1951-74 MVP's; Cy Youngs and ROY were also popular. and that was also because the CPU noted all that as well.

As an avid collector 40 years ago I remember being astonished at the first price changes I saw for "rookie" cards. Believe it or not Bob Horner was the first to cause a ripple then Rickey Henderson and Fernando blew the lid off!
