Most cost effective and legal way to Universal install CD for Mac OS X 10.5, to upgrade a PowerPC Mac?

Yes, a PowerPC machine is a deadend. But the person who needs it doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles for the next year or so, just something that can run a newer version of iTunes.
I've looked on Amazon and Ebay, where the price is more than the original way at the OS's release. We're talking $175 for what was originally a $129 upgrade.
Looked on Ccraigslist and not getting any nibbles.
Any ideas? Would prefer not pay over $50. Considering that the newer OSes are $30, paying more for an older OS is odd.
