Addison Russell

Addison "Addy" Russell is a budding superstar at shortstop for the Chicago Cubs. Russell has taken the league by storm with his superb fielding range, quick hands and clutch hitting. Russell's #27 jersey is one the best sellers in the industry right now. Fans and collector expect him to be around for a long time. Addison Russell signed baseball and autographed jerseys are the most popular collectibles. Don't be fooled by his youthful features, Russell's game is that of a seasoned vet.

More than a few baseball aficionados questioned Oakland's decision to trade its first-round pick of the 2012 draft to the Cubs in 2014. Two years later the players the A's traded for are elsewhere while they're former prospect, Addison Russell, just played in his first All Star game and is a key player in the heart of Chicago's lineup.
After several noteworthy stops in the minors, the Pace, Florida native was called up to Chicago in early 2015 and played primarily at second base before moving to shortstop in August. He demonstrated his defensive skills finishing near the top of fielding categories at both positions as the Cubs made their first post-season appearance since 2008. Manager Joe Maddon had enough faith that Russell was the future as shortstop that he traded three-time All Star Starlin Castro to the Yankees.
Although Russell's hitting below .250 for most of the 2016 campaign, he excels with men on base, which had him among team leaders in RBI heading into the final weeks of the season. With that in mind Maddon bumped Russell, who at times hit behind the pitcher at No. 9, to fifth in the order behind Ben Zobrist in early July. The Cubs are on pace to their best record in more than a century. And the Wrigley Field faithful are counting on Russell to play a major role in making this a memorable season.
Adding authentic Addison Russell signed bats, cards, and other items to your collection at this stage of his career is a wise investment. You should also check out memorabilia autographed by teammates such as Kris Bryant as well as Cub greats Ernie Banks, Ryne Sandberg, Andre Dawson and others.
