Also, very few sports cards go up in value from the year they're released. The exceptions will be like the hidden gem rookie that took a couple years to mature, like Jeremy Lin in basketball or Erik Karlsson in hockey. The other 99 percent will go down then plateau out in value. One nice thing about hockey cards is of all of the sports generally hockey cards go down very little and thus overall hold their value really well, especially Upper Deck post 2002 and old O Pee Chee cards. This is because these makers' sets have a lot of tradition built in.
