Most successful # in all of sports ?

  • Haven't seen it yet but ESPN is doing a best #24 bit. It got me to thinking, what's been the most successful number in all of sports?

    I haven't given it much thought yet but #23 with MJ came to mind but then I couldn't really think of another great #23. I don't really follow a lot of the other sports that closely so this is a tough topic for me.
    I do have faith that y'all can make this interesting.

    Remember, it's the most successful # combined. You could add Jeff Gordon's #24 to BeastMode's #24 to Jr's #24
    Opinions are just as welcome as factual totals.

    It's gunna be a long off seasons, let's have some fun fighting over stupid crap like this.

    Ready,Set, Go

    You're joking about Hebert, right? The guy couldn't even win a playoff game.

  • 32 is a pretty historic number as well.

    10 was popular for a long time.

    7 also.

  • Please pardon the mess above.
    It's a tit for tat that happened while this thread was in the Shack.

    I have hope that this thread may flourish now :{)
