About the best method I've found is setting the selling price at $1 (or
maybe $10 or $20 for large/valuable items), and maybe set a B-I-N price
for what I'd like to be able to get for it. If there's interest in the
item, bidders will generally bid it up to it's 'eBay value'.

If there's anything there that looks interesting (like another PDP-8), of
course I'd be willing to tell you a reasonable price you could sell it to
me for ;-).
