Baseball season has begun and with it we will see more hot dogs, cracker jacks and baseball cards. However, the last item has changed in presentation.
The Topps Company, Inc. has released Topps® BUNT® 2014, the exclusive Major League Baseball digital trading card app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Available now on the App Store, BUNT 2014 expands on its digital collecting experience with an all new design, more features, and its very first spokesperson, Los Angeles Angels outfielder and MLB superstar, Mike Trout.
BUNT 2014 is changing how we look at (literally) baseball card collecting but also enhances it. BUNT users can collect digital cards, trade with friends, and complete sets, just like with classic cards. And because it is digital, BUNT users enjoy innovative new twists, like live baseball statistics, real-time card rarity, limited edition flash sales, and the ability to carry their entire card collection in their pockets. The app launches with fun new features, including:
- Collection Score: think you have the best collection? Easily score your digital collection and compare with your friends and other users.
- Trader Rating: think you're a trustworthy trader? Evaluate yourself and your potential trading partners with simple, user-generated star ratings.
- Enhanced Card Play: drag-and-drop your way to better predictions and more points with improved card management.
"We're seeing users whose first Topps baseball card is a digital one," said Michael Bramlage, Vice President and General Manager of Digital at Topps . "In fact, 81 percent of our users are between the ages of 13 and 25 years old. It's no surprise that this digitally-savvy generation is embracing the thrill of the chase with digital collecting. And with Mike Trout helping to spread the word, we believe BUNT 2014 is a must-have app for anyone who considers themselves a baseball fan."

There's one tradition that should not be done. I don't think anyone will be putting their iPhone in the spokes of their bike.
