Beckett and completed listings on ebay

Why doesn't Beckett (or anybody else for that matter) compile the completed listings from ebay? This would help collectors know what their cards are actually worth. I'm sure many collectors already do check out the completed auctions of the cards they're looking for, but this would make it easier for everybody. It would also make Beckett relevant again.

I'd be willing to pay $10-15/year for online access to a database that has all of ebay's completed card auctions. I'd want it to be sortable by player, year, brand, card, autos, serial #ed, and relics. Give me the mean, median, and time history plots for all of the completed auctions. The time history plots would help show trends in player prices. Beckett or ebay or somebody needs to get on this, pronto.
