That is one error that will likely live forever. Just about every media outlet that does a story on a 52 Mantle card (and doesn't know cards from crabs) calls it his rookie card. It's actually kind of irritating to hear it over and over again, when it should have easily been corrected. It tarnishes the fabulousness of the story of the card a little by not being his RC, so that is probably why it lives on.
