Topps Bunt is a phone app where plenty of collectors buy virtual packs of cards and then wheel and deal to land the ones they want. Some are easy to find, others are not.
This Bryce Harper Signature Card was an award — given out to those who completed a collecting challenge in the game — and it’s limited to only 16 copies.
Just like real cardboard with Harper’s autograph on them, there’s big interest in rare cards of the likely National League MVP. This card commanded a few bucks as the rights to the card were sold on eBay — something that’s been a pretty common occurrence in the last couple of years as more and more baseball fans try out the app.
How much did it go for? You wouldn’t believe it unless you saw it. (The actual amount paid was $299 less than that posted price, but … still.)
Impressive collections of Bunt cards have commanded similarly serious results on eBay with pixels being the new prospective riches for some dedicated collectors avoiding the trappings of actual cardboard to store.
