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?

Show Hint


The franchise is a sports team, part of a national league, that places a number on the jersey of each of its players. The number 13 was retired as a way to honor the player who bore that number.
