I briefly had a Heathkit that I was considering restoring, and it needed the 0A2 tube. I bought one from Tube Depot and it arrived well packed with a big sticker on the packing box saying WARNING GLASS FRAGILE. Tube Depot has no minimum order requirements. You can buy one tube if that's all you need. They ship FedEx, which is a little odd. Also, they automatically add your email to their list. But all in all it's a great place to buy tubes. Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with this business, other than being a happy customer.

As items get rarer and harder to find, their prices go up--especially vacuum tubes, now that there are no more US manufacturers.

300's are rare and expensive. They aren't being made anymore, by anybody, so that has an impact on prices. I remember a dozen years ago when a WE 300B could fetch a couple hundred bucks. If you look at Tube Depot's prices for common tubes, they are reasonable.
