I don't see this being a win-win for anybody. The margins on memory is sort of slim as it is. By the time you factor in Massdrop's shipping charge and then the 6-8 week delay, that SD card might actually cost more than market value by the time it gets in your hands.
Also they have done a couple of SD card drops in the tech community, but I feel that the Photography community could use some SD card action.

Not much of a "big item" if you think about it? I mean Massdrop has a reputation for dropping high end headphones, cameras, lenses, etc. They don't really focus on many accessories do they?
They have dropped film in the past. They have also dropped many camera bags, several tripods, and had at least three drops for camera straps. I suspect that the real issue is that Sandisk controls the lion's share of the market on SD cards and may have limited interest in teaming up with Massdrop. This is only speculation. In addition to this, I feel that the community has not really pushed Massdrop to do an SD card drop, which I think could be a successful drop, particularly at a competitive price point for a speedy card.

Not a big item unless you're talking about CFast 2.0 cards - I have lenses that cost less than those cards!
