Maybe Topps Bunt Isn't All Bad
Things are very slow in the card front around here, so after scrambling through the scanned folder I found something that I had totally forgot about. Back in June I downloaded the Topps Bunt app, the virtual trading card game and starting messing around with, buying packs, making a few trades, and it turned out to be a fun little time waster. Then I heard people were actually selling these digital cards on the secondary market. So after pulling an Xander Bogaerts insert I put it up on ebay to test the waters. The auction ended at $7.56, almost 8 bucks for a card that does not actually exist! So with a basically free $7.56 in my paypal I added the card below to my collection.
$6.50 for a Carlos Gonzalez 2009 Upper Deck autograph. I would call the a huge win, basically trading a card that doesn't exist in real life, for an autograph of one of my favorite players, thanks Topps Bunt.
