I think the reason that the eBay prices are so low is more or less answered in your paragraph above! You have to be "paid" for the risk with the potential for a higher return though a low price. After all, if you buy a used car on eBay for a song, you have to realize that it still might be a fair price due to the condition of the car, or might have been too much if the car was a lemon or not meet your specification!
