Thought this was interesting. From an articleon ESPN about how guys chose/got their numbers:

Quote:
Anthony Rendon, Washington Nationals

"I actually hate the No. 6, but they gave it to me when I got here. I was 23 in college, and I was always 24 growing up for [Ken] Griffey [Jr.]. But 24 was taken in college, so they gave me the closest number. Everywhere we used to go, they called me Jordan. My birthday's in June, so there are some ties to six. I don't hate it, it's just not my favorite. It's a single number, too. That's weird. I've never had a single number.

"I was going to switch for this year. I could've taken 24, but MLB makes you buy all of the inventory, and it would've been like 40 grand. I told them, 'Don't make any more then. Just sell it and get the total down, and maybe I'll change it next year.'"


Thats insane.

NFL has the same policy

"So here is the deal with the number change!," Peterson tweeted. "So I received a call and I was informed that I would've to buy all jerseys that's been produced Thus far! N the total amount that I would have to pay blew my mind!!!!! Why? Ok so I see maybe ten thousand dollars of my total jersey sales! That's it!!! In I know I've mostly likely been in the top ten When it comes to top sales ! Why in the hell do I have to pay a Million dollars to change my number! I don't even get paid a million Dollars by my sponsors a year! Wow!!! N I'm talking about my nike deal!"

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey considered changing numbers last week, wanting to switch from 20 to 23.

Then he found out what it would cost.

Ramsey said Saturday he would have to buy every No. 20 jersey on the market before making the swap, which surely would have cost him six figures.

"I would have to pay a nice amount of money to get all those 20 jerseys out there," Ramsey said. "We'll see about next year."
