One in the 2010 World Series Giants team set and one in the Topps emerald Giants team set. Topps should have made a rookie card for him for the 2010 set. I think to make the 2012 topps card a rookie card that's stretching the "rookie card definition." Sure it's his first non-prospect base card but just how many years can you delay rookie card? I blame Topps... I've also been waiting for a Hector Sanchez rookie card all year. How about it Topps? Do I have to wait until 2014?

why should it be the RC when he had a card in 2010?
