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

Jan 8, 2022 - 6:20AM

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).

Billy Kingsley:  Thank you.

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

Mar 11, 2022 - 5:12PM

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.

NBA star Donovan Mitchell is the son of former MiLB player Donovan Mitchell

(And it looks like many of Jr's cards in multi-sport sets are linked to Sr's PID.)

Oct 24, 2022 - 10:52PM

I get that he played football in college but Torii Hunter Jr went professional as a baseball player so I'm not sure he should count...

Oct 25, 2022 - 7:15PM

Too bad no cards exist (or have not been found yet) for ex-Detroit Tiger Don Pepper ... his daughter Dottie Pepper played LPGA golf.

Jul 27, 2023 - 12:43PM

Here's a link to Phil Kessel's sister Amanda she played women's hockey for Team USA in the last winter Olympics

Sep 22, 2023 - 1:04PM

If/when Kessel Sr gets a card, the family will be added.

Willie Crawford of the Dodgers had a son with the same name who was on the UCLA football team after graduating HS in 1988 ... can't find a card for the younger one, which is understandable ... he was red-shirted his first year, then convicted of theft during his second year and kicked off the team.

Per Wikipedia, baseball's Willie Upshaw has a son, Chad Upshaw, who played football, but there is no card for him ... he was a tight end at U. of Buffalo, but was signed and waived several times in the NFL ... never got into a regular season game.

Dec 30, 2023 - 3:28PM

Such a connection is mentioned on the reverse of Elijah Green's 2023 Chronicles card.
