It would be terrible to lose these bits of Trek history because no one had contingencies in place if Best Buy got hit by financial problems.
No "if" about it. This is occurring right now. Best Buy's store sales have fallen for the last eight quarters (2.1% drop in 2012)... their stock is collapsing -- it's only a matter of time before they file for bankruptcy, just like Circuit City before them. Overall, the electronic retail industry is looking pretty grim.

The fans (like always) will be the ones who will have to save these exclusives for posterity.
