Once you're on the eBay page, sort the menu shown on the upper right side of the page by "Price: highest first," or 'Price + Shipping: highest first.' This enables you to only see items fetching the top prices in that category. After sorting (by highest price), try playing with the extra options on the left side of the page, to further refine the sales data. Also see the BONUS TIP located below, to speed up your research even more.
