I definitely gave up selling on eBay, but I keep flagellating myself by pouring over the offerings hoping to find something decent to BID on. I don't mind a bidding war, I mind seeing the same bottles up at ten times the retail value. Some of these bottles are going on TWO YEARS, because eBay does not charge for listings anymore

Prices are dramatically accelerating in all venues. Maybe it’s the Covid money (i think some affect) but more likely it’s the overall trend for investment in all collectibles as money seeks real, fungible assets in an inflationary environment. Same in commodities and real estate. Good for your valuation for what you have, bad if trying to buy! A sellers market for sure. We’ll see if the collectors market is a bubble or ongoing trend.

As I mentioned earlier. Feebay drove away a majority of sellers, but most of the buyers are still there shopping. Less sellers is what has help increase the prices. Shows are currently the best source for the older stuff.
