Any Current Production 12xx7 Tubes Worth Buying Yet?

In my current/ past amps I have tried Gold Lion 12at7s and various current production Russian and Chinese 12au7s and 12ax7s. Some sounded okay, but none came anywhere close to NOS/ vintage ones that could be had for $10-$15 a piece. Is there anything current production for around that price that might be as good or better? I like the way the vintage tubes sound, but the ones I have in my amp are 50+ years old!
