Derek Jeter has been wearing No. 2 for the Yankees since he was called up as a 21-year-old shortstop in 1995. His Majestic Athletic jersey remains the most popular choice among fans throughout Major League Baseball.
"It always feels good any time the fans respect how you play," Jeter said. "It's never something you think about, but you definitely take it as a huge compliment."
MLB and the MLB Players Association on Wednesday jointly announced the 20 top-selling jerseys of 2010 based on Majestic sales, and Jeter topped the list, followed in order by Twins catcher Joe Mauer and then three Phillies: Roy Halladay, Chase Utley and Cliff Lee. In Lee's case, it also included sales of his Mariners and Rangers jersey during the 2010 season.
