Few joys rival the childhood excitement of opening a fresh pack of Topps trading cards — especially once baseball season is underway. While we'll always have a place for physical trading cards, technology has opened up the possibilities for collecting beyond belief. The Topps BUNT app allows collectors to not only trade digital cards of their favorite players, but also earn points live based on each player's real time performance on the field.

Essentially, Topps BUNT combines the excitement of fantasy baseball with the rush of collecting cards — each pack of high definition cards holds a surprise and each MLB game determines the performance of your deck. "It's cool knowing that when I play on the field, BUNT fans can actually score while the game is going on," said 2014 AL MVP star center fielder Mike Trout. "Hopefully we can stack up a bunch of points together this season!"

BUNT gives fans the opportunity to compete for rewards in various contests over the season. Points are awarded for real-time player performances. Build different decks to compete in contests and watch the season's action unfold live in Topps BUNT as stats are added and player points are scored with every pitch.

Thanks to newly revamped tutorials (starring none other than BUNT fanatic Mike Trout himself) and a streamlined interface, collecting has never been more fun and exciting with Topps BUNT.
