Best of the best
It doesn't really matter what the number is. What counts is that it's on a player's jersey.
In conjunction with Mag senior writer Eddie Matz's story on the cult of the uniform number, we chose 100 jocks who did the most justice to their digits, 00-99. The over/under on how many you'll agree with? One.Key Stats: The Hall of Fame center was a model of toughness and consistency playing in 308 straight games over 15 seasons for the Oakland Raiders.
Other contenders: Oscar Robertson, Warren Moon, Billy Martin.
No. 00: He took the unusual number 00 because it was a pun on Otto's name (aught-oh).
