Russell Wilson Rangers jersey among top sellers online

MORE: Wilson flashes leather in Rangers camp

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is coming off a Super Bowl championship. We know that. He was also selected by the Rangers in MLB's Rule 5 draft this past December and has been hanging around their camp this past week.

Still, his Rangers jersey has been one of the top selling MLB jerseys online since becoming available on Fanatics.com this past Monday, according to the site. Here's a look, again, via Fanatics.com:

There's also a shirt-jersey -- or a "shirsey," if you will -- available for a much cheaper price.
