Bringing original card artwork to both the various mobile Topps apps, like Bunt and Kick, and to the real world, 2016 Topps Crossover takes a weekly print-to-order approach that is similar to Topps' Throwback Thursday set. The exclusive set releases each Tuesday and is sold for one week before sales are ended and a final print run is announced.
Issued in six-card sets that feature a specific insert theme, 2016 Topps Crossover gets its name from the fact that the cards are released simultaneously in both the digital and physical worlds. Although the actual sales quantity is not limited, the selling period is what controls the ultimate print run for each set.
In addition to Bunt, 2016 Topps Crossover also includes releases from other sports apps like Topps Kick, UFC Knockout, and WWE, as well as entertainment apps such as Star Wars Card Trader and The Walking Dead.
Because collectors cannot purchase individual cards, 2016 Topps Crossover has less buying options with only a full set or a three-set bundle.
1 set (6 cards) - $19.99
3 sets (18 cards) - $49.99
2016 Topps Crossover follows other online exclusives from Topps which include free SmartPost shipping built into the price. Cards ship 3-5 days following the end of the sales window and are printed on 16pt stock.
Check back regularly as the 2016 Topps Crossover profile will be updated with new cards and previous print runs every week.

These were very exclusive and a short run of product that are now harder to find. It produced one of Seager’s tougher base cards.
Though the quality control was lacking in the later sets as set 6 came with dinged corners.
Very attractive, affordable cards. Was disappointed that there were not more sets made.
