The true rc is just the base card of the main set. If you didnt have that, then what is the point of collecting? What would they put in packs? You would end up with a bunch of inserts instead of base cards and then those wouldnt be desired. So I do believe there needs to be a "true rc" in every set or else theres nothing to base a set off of. Thats all collecting is. Its classifying cards into different categories. If true rcs didnt exist, we would already have over 1200 cam newton rc cards rather than 29. That in my mind, is malarky lol. Look at sets like contenders, national treasures, exquisite, etc. The base card of the rc's in those sets are much more valuable and desired than any of the same players cards out of the same set even if they arent as rare.

Nope just as you mentioned 1200 different Cam Newtons which only 29 are True (RC). and 0 Navorro Base cards, or inserts or anything. I feel cheated.....Going to have to start making my own cards......
