    Number 9 is a tough one. Is it Ted Williams or Gordie Howe?

    Let's start it off with #1. To me, it's Billie Martin, but I'm sure there are better answers.

    My bias will show in many of the single digit numbers, as they belonged to Hall of Fame Yankees.

    Great idea for a thread. Are we doing this numerically, or just throwing stuff out there?

    The obvious:
    3 -- Ruth
    7 -- Mantle

    A little different:
    27/72 -- Fisk

    I did a story on this years ago but localized it. I also found a newspaper article that did it from 0 to 99 -- I think it was a Florida paper ca. 2006.

    Here's a more recent one ...

    Brown and Magic are a push. They both made significant cultural contributions (The Magic Johnson Show is the best worst TV of all time).
