If someone said number 99 was the greatest hockey player ever, you would think Wayne Gretzky. If someone said, no way, number 9 was the greatest hockey player ever, you would think Gordie Howe.
What other athletes would you know just off the mention of the number they wore?

You are correct, pardon me .
You're thinking Jordan, I immediately thought Gibson.
1/8 Eddie Gaedel
I would think 66 universally is Lemieux
Try asking someone in the Bronx who wears 42.
Detroit bias here.
People in Quebec may differ on your #9
especially if you add the context of hockey... 68 maybe too.
Or Number 4, Bobby Orr.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
To be fair, I did say "Detroit"....

Baseball numbers dont matter other than 42.
Hockey is watched by 1-2% of the nation. You might as well ask them what number Mia Hamm wore (although women's soccer is more popular, so you might find more people who know)
For football, there are too many greats that have worn the same number. 34 might be an exception.
And nationally, other than 23, no one owns a number.
288! all sports.
