What year, model iMac do you have? For older machines the best place to buy the disks would probably be eBay. Always buy the retail version not the machine specific version. In other words the Black disk with the big X not the gray - silver ones.

Tiger yes. Be aware that it's going to cost you 80-100 though, and as pointed out, you need the full retail version.

I just bought OS X Tiger brand new full retail version from ebay and they not only had the buy it now option, but there was the option to submit an offer. I got mine for $75 plus $8 shipping. Just waiting for it to arrive to install on an older G4 desktop.
