I don't think there is anything of great value. I would think you can fish any or all of them. Big Rock collector market has dried up a little. They are nice oddballs from Russ but neither looks to be mint. I'm not aware of a collector market for RuRu or Ding Bat. If I had to guess I would say each one could bring 25-35 and maybe a little more for the DingBat

Yeah they are used. The Ding bat is in really good condition though

The plug market took a nose dive..Things are not worth what they were a few years ago...

Yup, for some reason after last years shows the market took a downturn. Unfortunately people still think there “ collector plugs” are still worth what they were 2 years ago when in fact they aren’t.

Yea i see it everywhere...The freshwater market is still the same but that market has more serious collectors and history.Some plugs that were worth 60-80$ a few years ago are now worth 20$-30$

I have that ruru needle as well... it’s also marked “proto” like yours.
 

I’m personally holding onto mine, no rhyme or reason, I just don’t want to part ways with it. Really boils down to what it’s worth to you. I have plenty other lures I can fish with. Never hurts to hold onto one you’re not comfortable with letting go, or not sure about using. Stick it away and bring it out a couple years from now and see how you feel about it. Just because prices are down now doesn’t mean they’ll be down 5-10-or 20 years from now. If they are, well, you’re not losing any money on it, and you can fish it then. It’s really unpredictable. There’s always gonna be another season you can use it or sell it.
