* Wellington Mara said no Giants would again wear #14 after Ward Cuff retired. When Tittle was traded to the Giants in 1961, he requested and was given #14. The number is now retired in honor of both players.

In 1935, the Giants made Ray Flaherty (No. 1) the first professional athlete to see his number retired.
