To the Highest Bidder
Auctions have a tendency to elevate the prices of even the most mundane items. Sure, you might expect an art auction to get out of hand and send prices skyrocketing by millions of dollars, but even far lesser items tend to take on added value when there are competing parties trying to outbid each other. We took a look at recent auctions and found items in various categories that set records with the help of passionate bidders. You don't need a rare car to start a bidding war when a tooth or stamp will do.
