Interests of 2014: Top lists
It's not often that I decide to actually post something read-worthy on MTGStocks. But, I had a small conversation on Twitter where people indicated that interests over an entire year is something they would love to see. This has led me to have a look into the database, and provide you with the top 250 largest risers and top 250 largest decliners over 2014.
Before I present you with the numbers, and the (way too large) tables, I will tell a little bit about how this data was deducted. I first checked, for every card, the price on January 1st 2014. If for some reason this price did not exist (for example cards that simply weren't printed yet), I took the first known price of that year. So, if for example, the first known price is in September (like a card from KTK), I used that one. Then I looked at the price of December 31st. If this price did not exist, I took the last price known in December. If that price is below $2.00, the card is too cheap to even consider.
From these differences, I created the following top 250 tables. However, I left out all sets that are excluded from the daily interests lists by default. Also I manually removed a few outliers, like basic lands.
The tables with the top risers and decliners of 2014 can be found here.
