All Time Best Baseball Jersey Numbers


The Top Ten

1 42

Cause it might make me get lucky and hit awesome and be better then my cousin that plays baseball and he sometimes goes to Ripken state or world series.

Also Mariano Rivera, the first player ever unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame. - rslitman

Tribute to a great player, a very important one. Jackie Robinson "re-broke" the color barrier (don't believe me? Look it up.) and was a great player. Mo Rivera wore 42, and it took some guts to keep wearing it, so his number couldn't be retired. Rivera was a great player, and the last to ever wear no. 42. - AlGalaxy

Jackie Robinson was one of the best black players in the mlb just wake up and see

Kirby Puckett, Big Papi, Felix Hernandez, Nolan Ryan, and Bryce Harper all great players!
