Prices can be very intimidating to new collectors. Especially at an auction that has desireable stuff. I don't think prices have gone down (except on the common stuff), but they certainly aren't going up as fast as they have in recent years(except for the very best stuff). I only left bids on two items. I got one and was the back up bidder on the other. I would have bid on several other items, but I expected prices to be higher.
