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

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

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

42 was my travel ball number for about 3 years

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.

it's good

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.

This has been my number ever since I started to play sports and also I know that this number represents the best baseball player to ever play.

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

Ruth wore that number because back in those days, your number was your spot in the batting order. - 5ToolPlayers

That's my number and I'm the only one in the state

It's unique. Not everyone can pull off wearing 99.
