New Bunt Inserts Unwrapped – Stars and Stripes Edition

Fourth of July is a favorite holiday of mine, for many reasons besides celebrating independence day. You cant argue with Fireworks, grilling and a whole lot of baseball to watch. Bunt put out some really cool cards, including the rarest player card available to date.

Collectability: Unattainable
Playability: CaptureCapture

With only 17 copies in the game, this card is about as rare as it could possibly get. I saw the master set collectors offering Trout or Jeter sigs for it, and that only speaks to how collectable this card is. Not only does it look really cool, but it is a popular player with a big following. As far as I can tell most if not all are locked already, which means its going to be insane trying to get one.

This card isnt as rare, but still going to be crazy tough to get. A lot of people will want the card because its rare and because it looks cool. At 76 copies, this one is near the top of the rarity spectrum, and will likely need sigs to get a copy, unless there is some unsuspecting person out there who doesnt know what they have.

Collectability: Strong+
Playability: N/A

I really think this is a cool idea, but with 500 copies, it kind of takes the value away a bit. Having Jeter on these cards is really a huge plus, but they arent impossible odds to make it worth trading sigs for in my opinion. Once the reward is given out, these cards will definitely drop in value despite how cool they look.

Collectability: Strong
Playability: N/A

Another cool card, but lack of star power is going to hurt the value again. The big trade of Samardzija to the As is a huge deal, but Frazier is a hard sell to casual fans who may not know that much about baseball. Its 750 copies is a longer print run than the Jeter/Pedroia one, but you will need both to get the Trout/Posey. Really cool set.
