Question 1-

When do you consider a players jersey eligible for rookie year status? Is it the MLBA rookie of the year qualifiers?

The MLBA spec stats:
To qualify for the award a player must exceed neither of the following, before the season under consideration:

130 at bats or 50 innings pitched in the major leagues
45 days on the active roster of a major league club (excluding time on the disabled list or any time after rosters are expanded on September 1)Second question-
If they don't qualify for the rookie of the year, then does that mean the jersey is a debut jersey?

Third question-
Which is worth more a debut jersey or a rookie jersey and why?

One thing to add is the reason for question #2 is that I have been told that September call ups don't really qualify, so you may have a great player that is called up in the September before his break out year as a rookie.

If that happens is there a value difference between that jersey and the one he wears the next year (if he doesn't win the rookie of the year award)? If he wins the ROY then thats a no brainier :)
