Many sellers use eBay's completed listing search to try to gauge how much they can expect to sell their items for. However, eBay only displays auctions that ended within the 15 days prior to the day you search. There are only two ways to retrieve completed auctions older than 60 days. You can look up items that you bought within the past two years. If you want to consult eBay auctions at large, however, the only option is to pay a company called Terapeak, which offers you older auction data to help you determine your item's starting price.
