A rookie is a player who is in their first season playing or is new to something. The term rookie is most often used in sports. You can also be called a rookie when you get to a certain place for the first time even though you have been playing for 8 years. For instance, someone who made the NBA playoffs for the first time would be considered a "rookie" in the playoffs.

In ice hockey, sometimes players are called rookies even if it is their second or third season in the NHL.

Example: A player may play 1 game in 08-09, and 4 games in 09-10.

Then when they play 58 games in 2010-2011 it is their "rookie" season.

A rookie also means a "newbie" which means the beginning of something.

No. Most Rookie cards do not read Rookie on them. A Rookie Card is a players first year of cards, whether or not it is his rookie season. Players may have one or dozens of rookie cards, depending on how highly touted he was as a youngster and in which year his rookie card was issued
