For whatever reason cards have plummeted in value. In the 1990s they flooded the market with Upper Deck sets and such. Therefore even a Jagr or Lindros rookie isn't more than $10 now, if that.

The older ones, the O-Pee-Chee from the 1980s you assumed would keep going up but they'd dropped too, although not as bad as the 1990s. In reality, your best bet for getting value out of cards are ones that are in good condition from the 1960s. Maybe soem in the 1970s too. And there are some good rookies in the 1980s. But the card hobby is not what it used to be.

I don't think it will ever be the same anymore. With this generation of kids burying their noses in their cell phones, texting while they walk and having no attention span, I can't see that hobby ever picking up the way it used to be again.
