Technically, they are correct, but people that collect Topps baseball are already familiar with this question. With only one company allowed to produce baseball cards, how can a player have 10+ RCs? Until the definition changes, we will be dealing with this. I like the idea that each company can put out one RC per player. I do not like this "1 RC per set" notion. If a company has 10+ sets under its name and produces 10+ RCs, they become a pain to collect...and not because they are scarce and worth anything.
