Maybe the trick is to get them drunk the night before, so they are bidding with a hangover. Then, when you are bidding against them, you announce your bids in an extremely high, aggressive voice. Perhaps your opponent will stop bidding against you because his head can't take the screaming.
Get them drunk and then let them waste their money on Barry Bonds, Griffey, Jeter, ect.
