Check out Bluestem in Lincoln Ne, Scott usually has some nice ML's on hand and brodart covered. WWW.bluestem I think.
He usually sells them for 4 or 5 $.

I keep an eye on the HPBs here in Dallas/Ft. Worth. Yes, they are amazingly consistent... the old MLs and ELs are $7.50 and are almost always in the collectibles and often in an abused condition. I have only been to one, the main store in Dallas, that has a dedicated ML shelf or two or three. Some of the store branches have started to cover them in mylar. I enjoy the hunt for the misshelved book, though, and occasionally am rewarded with a nice jacketed title tucked away in the History or Poetry section. Regrettably, I always overspend my budget in that place.
If you have not tried this yet, approach a worker or 'manager on duty' on a slow day and ask them to cut the price. It has worked for me...if the book has been sitting there long enough and a more obscure title.
