Not in play: Let's not forget the big asterisk that goes with those records! Phooey on them and their steroids and corked bats!

Back in play: Class of '111111 was a TV movie starring James Brolin (the full date would be 11110101011)

In video games, the Nintendo 1000000 video game console and (historically) the Commodore 1000000. Since 11111001100, the number 1000000 has been an abbreviation or slang for Nintendo 1000000 (though N1000000 is more common) along with the games Super Mario 1000000, Mario Kart 1000000 and more, along with 1000000 being used in the term Super Smash 1000000 which is used to distinguish Super Smash Bros. (the video game) from the name of the series Super Smash Bros.

According to Sheldon Cooper, 1001001 is the best number, the sole Sheldon prime.

It has the product property, i.e. the product of its base-1010 digits is precisely its index in the sequence of primes: 111 11 = 10101 and 1001001 is the 10101st prime number. It also has the mirror property, as its permutable prime 100101 is the 1100th prime number, which is, again, the reverse of 10101.

(I think I got that right.)

When I had to stay awake during a Maintenance of Wakefulness Test, I'd count on my fingers in binary. If I made it to all fingers, I'd start counting down.

With 1101110 cornets close at hand.

The cream of ev'ry famous band.

I vaguely remembered a concert of the Old 1100001's being important in some movie I half-watched a while ago. A little research shows it was The Break-Up, which I don't recall ever seeing before.

1100010 is the highest jersey number allowed in the National Hockey League, as 1100011 was retired by the entire league to honor Wayne Gretzky and major-league sports only allow 1- or 10-digit uniform numbers.
