All Time Best Baseball Jersey Numbers


The Top Ten

1 42

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

This number belong to Jackie Robinson, MLB has retired this number and it hasn't been used since.

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

2 24

Robby Cano, Old Manny, Mark Teixeira with the Braves, Willie Mays Tony Perez, and Early Wynn.

So many great players to wear 24. One of the hardest debates to have in baseball is who was the greatest 24? Griffey, Mays, Henderson? Many more greats who weren't as good.

Worn it past two years, I mean Teixeira, Griffey, Mays, and HENDERSON. That list deserves to be the best.

That is my number

Papi, Felix, and BRYCE HARPER (google him I you don't know him... Hit a 570ft hr as a freshman, which wasn't a fluke, can throw 96, throw runner out from his knees as catcher (his primary position) and the fastest bat speed ever

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

Yeah I agree it's a pretty cool number, However I wouldn't were it unless you are a freshmen or above player

This used to be my number, but I switched to 23. I wanna switch back! Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball legend ever, and I was proud to wear his number! Well not really but still. Awesome number.

My number for baseball this year hopefully gives me good me good luck this year. Babe ruth was the best player in mlb history!
