Ebay past auction prices?

Is there a way to look at past auction prices on ebay. That is, I'm interested in purchasing something on ebay and I want to see what similar items sold for in the past. Maybe I'm missing it, but is there a function on ebay that lets you look at auctions past?

Thanks

Completed Items...

Do a search on the item your looking for... it will then load a page and show you the 'active items'. In the left margin of that page there is a heading 'Search Options' check the 'completed listings' box and then click the 'show items' bar ... you WILL have to be a member to use this option...

A great feature...

Note that it only goes back a couple weeks. Used to be longer, but they reduced the time period covered.

That Prepal site does not look like it has been updated in awhile. Anybody know anything about the site. Is it still current?

I dont believe it's been updated in at least 3-4 years.

I wanted to start a project archiving these auction results once, and then I got lazy.

But really, now I know why eBay doesn't themselves offer an archive, and why they won't let others legally store this info either:

Their reason, ostensibly, is to prevent illegal auctions from being ever accessable after they are pulled.
