Baseball Rookie Card Collecting Is Confusing:

"The confusion in my opinion started back in the late 1980s when Topps started putting out a Topps Traded subset at the end of the season and putting cards of the USA team in their sets. Beckett started calling these first cards of players as XRC meaning Extra rookie cards. The collectors who were used to calling the first card issue of a player as their rookie cards immediately accepted these XRC cards as the player’s “True Rookie Card” thus giving the card a lot higher value then any future cards of this player."
