The chase for $1 million begins next year for card collectors.
Topps announced its digital component for 2013 Topps Baseball and a lucky winner could get the grand prize.
Collectors will unlock players at the Million Dollar Chase website by redeeming codes found in 2013 Topps Baseball Series 1.
To play, each day pick a player from your list you think will get a hit in a game that day.
The first person to beat Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak will win $1 million.
Participants will win prizes throughout the event as they rack up hit streaks. Prizes include autographed and coin cards. Season-long winners could win autographed memorabilia.
Topps has used digital games with its flagship product for several years now. Collectors have been able to get vintage cards and exclusive die cuts.
This version is similar to its football game this year, NFL Game Time, where collectors unlocked teams and picked five to use that week. Collectors would get points based on the amount of points a team scored, but tokens could be used just once.
