Default Q on OJ Rookie(s?) and casual WTB information

I have been slowly buying HOF caliber auto rookie cards and have been thinking about getting an OJ this year.

I am curious about if this comment is accepted within the vintage community:

"This is the only recognized rookie card of one of football's greatest running backs, at both the collegiate and professional levels."

https://www.psacard.com/cardfacts/fo...impson-90/9398

I have a preference for the 1970 Super Glossy, and then about a tie between the 1970 Topps and 1970 Super. Are the Supers not considered rookies by enthusiasts? I know ebay sellers do, but am unfamiliar with the opinion of others.

Lastly, there are a few auto rookies I am particularly interested in if anyone has these for sale: 1984 USFL Reggie White, Eugene Upshaws, Merlin Olsens, John Mackeys, Dick Butkus, Gale Sayers, Jim Parker, Mike Webster, Jim Brown, Walter Payton, Adam Vinatieri.

Thanks.
Peirce

Semantic debate to which there is no right answer. All in the beholder's eye. To me if it's a licensed issue from 1970 it's a rookie card.

Yeah, that was my line of thinking going into the initial search for the card.

Some people would also consider the 1970 Kelloggs a rookie. Wonder if anybody ever tried to get an autograph on that surface?

I draw a line between a Topps regular issue and inserts, test issues, food issues, etc. All might be considered his rookie but only the Topps regular issue is his true rookie card.

Not only are the all RCs they even have the same image. But then I've always treated this as a Csonka RC:

Unless you are addicted to registry crack, consider any card from a players first year in the league (or year of first card image) to be his rookie card.

Some will also consider earlier cards from college or even HS to be their "true rookie" and/or pre-rookie cards ... each to their own!
