How many of you have tried Topps Bunt?
It’s a virtual baseball trading card game. I downloaded the app to my Android tablet while it was still in beta mode. I tried it for about 10 minutes and gave up. There’s nothing wrong with Topps Bunt, but considering how obsessed I became with Candy Crush once upon a time, I am not looking to get sucked down the digital gaming hole once again.
The app allows you to trade cards and pick up packs with random and rare cards inside.
But there is another way to get Topps Bunt cards – you can buy them on eBay. And, these digital cards are selling.
If you wanted this rare Mike Trout signature card, one dealer is selling it for $500 BIN. Yes, it sounds crazy, but if you look at completed listings, similar digital Trout cards have sold for around $150.
Now, if I wanted to get a Derek Jeter digital signature, I could fork over about $120. Since it's the only Topps Jeter autograph that will show up in packs any time, maybe there are some who think it's worth it.
However, not all the Bunt cards on eBay are selling for obscene amounts of money. Lots are extremely popular, giving new users a whole cache of digital cards. Also, some sell for a couple of bucks or two showing there is no real difference between physical and digital cards when it comes to value.
