A well-respected franchise of a national association absolutely refuses to place the number thirteen on any of their merchandise. Although they use nearly every other two-digit number, something about that particular number prevents them from using it. They are not superstitious in the least. In fact, they have a truly honorable reason for not using the number thirteen.

What is that reason?

Wouldn't they still have merchandise relating to the revered player?

This is a well made teaser, so good job, but I found it boring. I really didn't care what the answer was. BUT it is a good teaser

A good sports teaser. I guessed it because you said franchise also i agree with the 1st person, they might still sell jersey copies of lucky number 13.

Yay! I got it! i think that it was good because if the companies only make jerseys (not other merchandise, just the jerseys for the players) than this would work. nice teaser!

I was thinking an elevator manufacturer. The elevator manufacturer itself need not be superstitious to avoid using the number 13, as buildings themselves are already built without a "13th" floor because of superstition. But an elevator manufacturer wouldn't be a "franchise of a national association," I guess.
