2016 Topps Tier One Prime Performers Autographs #PP-JPA Jimmy Paredes

Phillies 4Marlins 3 (13)
Game 148 - Friday Night, September 16th in Philadelphia
Record - 47-58, 4th place, 15 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Jimmy Paredes hit a bases loaded, walk-off single in the 13th to score Peter Bourjos and give the Phillies a 4-3 win.

What It Means:  The win probably wasn't Topps Now worthy, but it was still exciting.

What Happened:  Up until the winning hit from Paredes, the biggest Phillies hit from this game was Ryan Howard's solo home run (22) in the bottom of the sixth.  The Phils held a 3-2 lead going into the eighth, but Edubray Ramos surrendered a pinch-hit home run to Derek Dietrich.  Frank Herrmann pitched a scoreless 12th and 13th innings for the win, his first since 2011.

Featured Card:  Added to the roster on June 1st through a trade with the Blue Jays (for cash considerations), Paredes is probably one of the least known members of the 2016 Phillies roster.  His sole Phillies card can be found within the second series, team-issued photo card set but Topps has included him in several of their sets this year.  As a member of the Orioles, Paredes cards can be found within Topps flagship, Topps Heritage, Topps Gypsy Queen, Stadium Club and Topps Tier One.  I (cheaply) added the card featured here to my collection through a recent COMC purchase.

As discussed in this post, I'm taking a poll on how collectors track baseball card collections.
