Option 4: I don't think he's worth investing in.

The prices are not an issue. He's not too expensive. I, personally, just do not believe he has the talent. For that reason, I don't think he is worth investing in. Option four.

Ugh, as an A's fan who just wants some of his cards I wish his stuff wasn't so overpriced right now.

Also, Cubs4Life,

Have you seen him play in person? I'm just curious as to how you're evaluating the talent of a 19 year old kid.

You know, I wish bowman draft would come out sooner post-draft rather than half a year later. There's reasons Russel wasn't so high, but it's a big tip-off when the A's take a highschool player.

I think a little of it might have to do with that teams have until August 15th to sign their draft picks. So maybe earliest would have to be September? Who knows.

Well I've already tripled my money on him, so I voted for investing in him.

I'm an A's fan and was happy when they drafted him and I do like him BUT he is way too expensive right now IMO.

I traded i bunch of inserts/refractors/couple $10 autos for russells draft ref auto and pulled a sterling auto redemption. i bought a usa x-fractor auto for 40 (pretty good), bought a leaf valiant auto for $10 and did a trade/cash for a usa triple jersey auto. so for 5 autos i'm only in for about $55-60. i'm more collecting then investing, i just hope it doesnt burn me like gordon beckham did.

Anyone that says the kid doesn't have talent doesn't know much about how to evaluate talent. Probably jealous they weren't with me and dbott when you could buy base for $25-30 and golds for $275-325

Maybe overhyped, but the talent is there.
