The world's most trusted source in collecting

I recently subscribed to Organize and posted my collection, and I used the player search feature to obtain a list of all Bryce Harper cards. I have all of the cards that have a RC tab under the title and I just want to make sure I am not forgetting any other cards marked rookie. The reason I say this is some cards like the alternate Topps 661 cards have the Rc logo on the card but are not showing as rookie cards on the search, thanks Chris you do a great job for collectors out here!!!

Keep in mind, there may be many more 2012 cards out there with the RC logo. However, unless they're shown in Beckett with the "RC" logo, they're not the official RCs, but rather "(RC)s." I don't have the time or knowledge to explain the distinction, but as far as I can gather, there can only be one true "RC" per set (with the exception being there are two Update RCs. -Not sure why.)

With older sets in the database, does Beckett have any sort of notes or source material to indicate where the initial information came from? Specifically in the older baseball sets, is there any evidence to support the 1991 MVP Pins set is a separate entity from the 1991 Major League Collector Pins set (from the Ace Novelty Company)? None of the big time, deep-pocketed player collectors (y'know, like the Juan Gonzalez, Jose Canseco, Rickey Henderson and Will Clark collectors who aren't shy about dropping $100+ for odd printing variations of early 1990s cards) have a standalone pin from 1991, they only have the pin that comes with a 1991 Score card. As far as I can tell, only the 1992 edition was issued as pin, without a baseball card.
I have a similar question about a couple of the "error" cards in the 1990 Classic Blue set. The Ricky Jordan (supposedly with his name spelled "Jordon" on the back) and Hensley Meulens (supposedly spelled "Muelens") errors don't seem to exist, and look to have been carried over from the 1989 set where those two errors did exist. I've opened multiple copies of both the "corrected" set (with the Deion PRIME TIME Sanders card on front) and the "error" set (with just PRIME TIME on the front), but neither has an error version of Ricky Jordan or Hensley Meulens. That being the case, where does the justification for listing those two errors originate?
