ROTOscouting Plays On The Topps Bunt App
At ROTOscouting, our goal is to scratch out a living writing about baseball by building an active community of fans interested in being treated as baseball equals. YOUscout. Facebook. Twitter. Email. Readers and subscribers are able to open and keep active lines of communication with the ROTOscouting staff. What better way to do this than with baseball cards? Recently, my son and I began playing Topps Bunt, an app where users can buy, trade and play virtual baseball cards. Since starting, we’ve accumulated about 275 cards and the seven year old has been more interested in the game of baseball than ever — especially when we can talk about players we’ve seen in person during my six years scouting prospects.
This isn’t a review or promotion to download the app and begin playing. More than anything, it would be more fun if we had “friends” to chat and trade with in the Topps Bunt app. And with so many of our contributors and readers being mothers and fathers wanting to share baseball stories and memories, this is a great opportunity to do just that.
Unfortunately, baseball cards aren’t a quarter like when I started collecting nearly three decades ago. Now, five dollar packs are the norm and it’s difficult to start a collection. With Topps Bunt, my son and I now have a virtual collection and he wants to play real baseball almost everyday. It has been a win-win for our father/son relationship on multiple levels.
Start A Topps Bunt Collection For Free AND Add ROTOscouting As A Friend
Yes, it’s easy to spend oodles of money playing this “free” app, but we’ve played for over a month without making a purchase. No, we probably won’t pull many special cards, but we really don’t care. Earning the occasional award and opening a few virtual packs each week is more than enough. Just yesterday, we earned our first “Super Rare” cards (Gold Troy Tulowitzki and Gold Paul Goldschmidt). My son made me promise to never trade them AND Jeff Baker, his favorite player for some weird reason.
