James Laurinaitis' father was actually John's brother, better known as Road Warrior Animal.

Not sure if the Pillman's should count, since Brian Sr was known much more for being a wrestler.

Speaking of which, when AEW cards hit the site, look out for Jungle Boy, son of the late 90210 actor Luke Perry.

A rare triple play - Richard Nurse (father, football), son Darnell (hockey) and daughter Kia (basketball).

Mike67:  Corrected father of James Laurinaitis from John to Joe Laurinaitis.

stevejrogers:  Agree, its a bit of a stretch.

buckstorecards:  Actually Nurse is a quadruple play, also daughter Sarah(hockey).

Great topic!

Another football/basketball combo for you:

Elfrid Payton (CFL Hall of Famer)

Son: Elfrid Payton (basketball)

Jan 8, 2022 - 5:27PM

FYI, Sarah Nurse isn't Richard's daughter, although he (and Donovan McNabb) is her uncle.

In another CFL connection, Elfrid Peyton of the CFL is the father of the NBAer of the same name. The connection is mentioned on his 14-15 Court Kings Art Nouveau card. 

Carlton Bailey (NFL) is the father of Justin Bailey (NHL). Both spent time playing for their respective Buffalo franchise.

DanD - Thank you.

buckstorecards - Correct, Sarah is a niece.

Looking for more suggestions...thinking there must be some football / track and field combos.

Karl Malone (NBA)

Cheryl Ford (WNBA) & Demetress Bell (NFL)

Jan 8, 2022 - 10:25PM

twinscollector34 - Thank you.

SaintOrm - Cheryl Ford is same sport as Karl Malone, so does not qualify.  Demetress Bell would qualify but is not on TCDB.

Adding:  Randall Cunningham, Joe Poplawski and offsprings.

Torii Hunter: Baseball

Torii Hunter Jr.: Football

Nice list.  If I remember correctly Jojo Offerman which I think has a wrestling card is the daughter of Jose Offerman, baseball player.

Mar 14, 2022 - 7:41AM

According to Wikipedia, Alvin Robertson is the father of Tyrell Johnson

Mar 16, 2022 - 3:13PM

If you used the Pillmans, where both were wrestlers but Brian had one football card, could you do the same with Rocky and Dwayne Johnson?  The Rock has one football card but you have to search him under football, not wrestling, to find it.

Mar 16, 2022 - 9:26PM

They played in different sports so I will add them.  Playing in the same sport as well doesn't disqualify.

There would have to be a non-baseball "sport" card to include Peter Marshall and son.   Only Non-Sport cards found.
