Topps wants prospectors to show off a bit more than their Chrome rainbows.
It wants to see how much they know about the players.
The company announced Tuesday that it will launch the Bowman Prospect Challenge in 2012 Bowman Draft, which arrives later this month.
The code cards will allow those who find them to unlock four prospects, one of which will be chosen to play for one of 10 monthly prizes that will include autographed Bowman cards at this link and a season-long grand prize with 150 exclusive Bowman Victory autograph cards of other top prospects.
Some code cards will unlock Blue Wave Refractor packs, which will include autographs in some instances.
The code cards will be found one in every six packs of Draft, arriving on Nov. 28, as well as 2012 Bowman Sterling (Dec. 19) and 2013 Bowman (May 1).
