Re: Winning auctions for same or more than retail?

I got outbid on every single lot (some by a lot) and I felt my bids should have been competitive. During one 10 minute stretch I watch today, I saw a single bidder win lots that totaled well over $100,000. Hard to compete when people are dropping that kind of coin.
