Me too (with exceptional exception to the vitriol). I keep an occasional eye on prices via eBay, and often see interesting trends. For example I purchased a NOS Cinelli Volare saddle about a year ago for $50, which was pretty much the going rate; last week an identical saddle sold for more than twice that amount. In the same span of time prices for Campy SR chainrings of a particular tooth count have come down by half.
