A Rookie card is he first card produced of a player or athlete that is a part of a nationally distributed, fully licensed sports card set.
The RC designation extends to all cards produced that fit the definition in a single year, so it is possible for one athlete to have many different rookie cards.
A rookie card is not necessarily always produced during a player's rookie season because there could have been cards that fit the definition printed in previous years.
It is generally agreed that to be a true rookie card, the card must be numbered as part of a product's base set. Thus, insert cards of any type are generally not considered to be rookie cards.
