It's lost some ground to sites like Craigslist, Amazon, and Etsy over the years, but in the early to mid 2000's the name eBay was synonymous with e-commerce. Launched on this day in 1995 by now-bajillionaire Pierre Omidyar, the online auction site gave everyday people an online marketplace the likes of which the world had never seen. Cartoonists reacted to eBay's pop culture cache accordingly, creating scads of gags relating to the phenomenon well into the present day. After all, sometimes it's tough to remember what life was like without it.

Read these 11 eBay comics to relive the site's heyday and ponder its ongoing relevance.
