Jon Singleton, Postseason Hero?

Even if the Astros make the postseason, Jon Singleton won't be there to help out as he's not on the eligibility list for MLB postseason play. But he did provide some heroics last night for the AAA Fresno Grizzlies in their series against the Round Rock Express for the PCL championship. With his team facing elimination, Singleton hit the tying RBI single in the 3rd inning and hit a 6th-inning home run to bring the score to 2-1, which was the final tally. The win extended the series for a deciding game 5 today, which the Grizzlies won 7-3 to clinch the 2015 PCL Championship.

Today's card is another single I picked up from eBay for a couple bucks. It is Singleton's Gold Refractor from 2015 Topps Chrome. Much to the consternation of collectors and case breakers, Topps changed up some of the colors and print runs for Chrome parallels this year, but the Gold Refractors stayed the same with 50 copies printed of each. My copy of the Singleton card is numbered # 38 / 50.
