I see a lot of enticing cards to buy well below BV on eBay, then I look at completed auctions and they're never anywhere close. I'm just wondering so I can [possibly] prevent myself for overpaying.

You may have to be patient but I am constantly amazed at the quality of of cards people are looking to sell at bigger shows . You have to pay the table rent and have enough nice stuff to sell but you can buy at 25% to 40% all day. Not particularly fond of ebay with all the shilling and underhanded deals but occasonally still buy there.
