Default 2013-14 Fleer Showcase Shortage??

So I heard a rumor last night at my card store. I went in there to buy 2 boxes of Fleer Showcase and the owner told me that it has been sold out through most of his distributors. And one of the distributors told him that there was a problem with the printing and the overall production was shorted. Some regional distributors may still have some, but they aren't getting more anytime soon. He did say the one place where there were still some left is canadian distributors (I would assume UD sends more to Canada because of higher demand).

Has anyone else seen a shortage of Showcase? I just don't want to have to end up paying $200/box when the only people that have it left are ebay retailers.

I'm my LCS has a few left but they are $150 with tax.

Noticed cloutsnchara has had less group breaks with, hard to believe on the shortage but you never know.

Probably none since UD has a 90 day policy for online sales.

Plenty available.

Looks like all the cards are pennies even with all the nice patches and everyone liking the set.

Is everyone just holding out for the cup/spa???

Same with my LCS in RI, was surprised that this product was not available even the usual over priced boxes on the secondary market.
