How is the Pro Football Hall of Fame Rookie Players Set List determined? Choices seem arbitrary.
I've been looking through the PSA Pro Football Hall of Fame Rookie Players Set List and am wondering how some of the designated "rookie" cards have been determined.
For example, in 1990 the set claims that Junior Seau's RC is the 1990 Action Packed card. However, it also claims that Emmitt Smith's RC that year is the Score Supplemental. Both players are in both sets, which common sense would seem to dictate that the same set would be chosen for the RC.
Are the options for RC just randomly chosen from among the players cards of their first year or is there more substantial criteria that is being used to create this list?
