Thank you for the info. I do think I have a good picture of what the current landscape looks like now. It would seem that local retailers that import their cards/proprietary brands direct from manufacturers...I do, for the most part (on more than one brand) however, not willing to disclose it in public and in writing.
All I can say is this. Up to distributor level pricing has remained largely in line with the base cost the card lands at. The big'ish margin is added on to that after the fact.
Make of that what you will.
Profit, blah blah, shortage, blah, volume vs single digits over time, shipping small batches, operating costs. Anyway, my annoyance level has been raised a few levels.
At least the picture is clearer. Thanks again.
