You'd have to wait probably 3 more centuries from now before the team is even close to running out of numbers to give their players.
Three centuries from now we'll have a population that can deal with three-digit numbers, fractions, or negative numbers.
I would totally buy a jersey that had pi or e or phi or 101 or -1/12 as the jersey number if a player wore it :-)
