That's eBay, people are always paying silly prices there.
Remember that many people are addicted to shopping and they get a sense of achievement from "winning" an auction.
They often don't know the retail price of what they're buying, sometimes don't even know what they're buying, and/or get swept away in the competition to "win" and loose track of the value of what they're bidding on.
Auction houses survive because of that, if people were always sensible in their bids most auctions wouldn't sell anything because the buyers would deal directly with the sellers rather than compete with each other.

heck, I've seen people paying thousands of dollars for information on where to buy a new digital camera.
Had they just gone to the nearest dealership and asked they'd have had that same information for free.

As a sidenote it must be mentioned though that those auctions were fraudulent, people were led to believe they were bidding on the camera itself unless they read the entire description (deliberately made extremely long and convoluted) very closely.
