When someone wants to get money for their old iPhone or a used textbook, eBay is the place to go. The multinational auction-style website lets users put their possessions up for auction or make bids on other sellers' items, all with the simple click of a button. Founded in 1995, and based out of San Jose, California, eBay has grown into a multi billion dollar business that functions in over 30 countries worldwide.
Although most bids are pretty modest and go towards everyday items, there's some that have taken eBay to a whole new level, selling for up to several million dollars. Check out which items earned the highest 10 bids in the history of eBay.

9 Shoeless Joe Jackson's Baseball Bat - $577,610
8 Ferrari Enzo - $1 million
7 Honus Wagner Baseball Card - $1.1 million

5 House With a War-Proof Bunker - $2.1 million
4 The Town of Albert, TX - $2.5 millon
3 Lunch with Warren Buffett - $2.6 million
2 Gulfstream II - $4.9 million
1 Gigayacht - $168 million
The most expensive item sold on eBay to date is a Frank Mulder designed Gigayacht, which auctioned off for an incredible $168 million, in 2006. The yacht was purchased by Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich who rose to fame and riches by owning the investment company, Millhouse LLC and the Chelsea Football Club. At 405 feet long, his new ginormous yacht includes two VIP suites, a children's cabin, guest cabins, a gym, movie theater, spa, elevator and helicopter pad. We're not sure why the yacht's manufactures chose to sell it on eBay, but because of their decision and Abramovich's bid, history was made.
