www.ubid.com has them regularly for $70 US -- huge lots as well (100 or
more cards, so the price is pretty stable. The only catch is that you need
a US shipping address (which I can arrange through work), and a credit
card with a US billing address -- which I had troubles sorting out.

Perhaps if someone out there knows someone in the states who would be
willing to be billed for the things (and then reimbursed), we could
arrange a CLUG lot?
