It's been a somewhat stressful week for me. I had a call-back interview for a position I was really excited about, which meant that this second would entail meeting with the bigwigs of the firm, as well as a slew of associates. This was my chance to try and establish a personal connection since I knew they already felt I was qualified.
I was told at the end that they had hoped to make a decision at the end of the week. Friday came and went without any update. I felt like I did well in the second interview so I'm not too worried that I didn't hear anything. Still, Friday was nerve racking because there was the possibility I would hear something.
To relax at the end of the week I picked up a pack of 2016 Topps Bunt. Bunt is Topps' mobile trading card app. To bridge the digital divide, Topps released a physical version of the Bunt cards. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does not care for digital cards so a physical version holds little appeal to me. Nonetheless, at $1 a pack I had to try out a pack.

I had low expectations going into this pack. After opening it, I certainly did not have my expectations exceeded. If this pack was any more than a dollar I would have been disappointed but thankfully it was cheap.
The giant logo in the background is distracting. The gray nameplate is drab. The photography is close-cropped on every card and the shots are standard. I think the Donaldson photo is my favorite out of the pack.
It might not show up on the scans too well but there is a mostly transparent overlay around the edges of the card. I feel like that's supposed to give the cards a pixelated effect because you know, digital cards. I don't mind it, though. Although that damn smoke from Topps flagship makes an appearance on Bunt. Not a fan of the smoke.
The back of the card is what you would expect from a set like this. Simple design with a quick blurb.
For a $1 pack, this is a cheap, no frills option. Given that it's hard to find inexpensive packs these days this a nice change. However, you get what you pay for, which is a few basic cards.
