Just the Ones

Why just ones? I know there has to be a reason and this is not intended to speak ill off all the great work in any way. It's just that twos and threes an fours all have more character and design variations from font to font that may help capture the "taste" of the numbers. Just a thought.

To borrow from our "ABOUT" page and the FAQ's...

FAQ
Q. Why did you only use the number 11 instead of other numbers as well?
A. With nearly 80 years of history to cover, limiting to a single digit reduced the amount of research time needed for uncovering fonts. Secondly, when we get to the era of TV numbers, the spacing on the sleeves is much easier to manipulate 1's into a centered position than wider numbers. Thirdly, and along the same lines, the 1's are easier to get into tight places like inside the sleeve horn on a Rams jersey. Other numbers would need to be made too small to look right. We do intend, at some point in the future, to add a section to the site that includes full size versions of each teams number fonts 0-9.
