Does this mean that there will be a glut of used cards for sale soon?

Mining is ONLY worth it for those that do not have to pay for electricity, or have serious farms going.

I do not mind buying a used mining card. The only concern will be whether it was abused to run consistently withing, or into thermal, throttling for the sake of extra $0.20c a day.

Read an article somewhere last night that running the fans at 100% 24x7 dries up the lubricants causing them to fail prematurely.

I for one won't touch a card used for mining.

Nah, shortages on the popular cards will continue well into next year.

That makes no sense.

I'm sure the demand for 2nd hand cards will keep the prices at a normal(ish) level -- except if 10+ guys drop 30 cards each at the same time, which would be stupid.
