By: Vibe / March 12, 2012

All hip-hop heads, it’s time to get back in Pokemon-mode! The world’s first hip-hop trading cards with interactive content will debut on May 1, in more than 20,000 retail stores nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Target, Hot Topic, Meijer, and Toys R Us. 
 
The Platinum League Trading Card Series will feature one-of-a-kind photos of today’s greatest hip-hop artists, their individual background information and career highlights, and a QRL code link to an exclusive video message from each artist accessible from any smart phone or mobile device.
 
Each pack of trading cards will feature five artist cards with an additional ‘6th Card’ that gives the buyer an access code to log-on to a mobile web site, claim instant prizes and enter a sweepstakes where prizes range from money, new cars, a brand new Rolex, back stage passes, and much more.  There’s a winner in every pack, and the company projects it will give away approximately 3-million prizes every three months.
 
To enter the sweepstakes, download an exclusive Platinum League mobile application, “The League” Media Player, and then scan the QR code on each trading card with your phone. You can also enter on the company’s official website, www.platinumleague.com, for a chance to win prizes.
