And now, predictably, a video game has taken Vine to the next level. Talk about marketing magic.

MLB The Show is a baseball video game that is “so real, it’s unreal” – and they’re proving it with Vine.

Gameranx shares that some fans of the PS3-exclusive game recently got a surprise via Twitter – a trading card made from their likeness on Vine.

These cards are created with the help of one of the design team’s artists and photos from their twitter profile. These cards are one of the more unique ways MLB the Show 2013 has been trying to excite old and new fans.

According to SportsCity, “The Show has also been giving away some choice prizes away to their followers all day which have included a signed baseball from Matt Kemp and a signed jersey from Andrew McCutchen.”
