2016 Topps Archives Father-Son Inserts

Just completed a small seven card insert set, the 2016 Topps Archives Father-Son Inserts.  I’m old enough to know players from most of the generations represented.  Even though the phenomenon of professional athletes having children who also become professional athletes is well known, I still find it interesting in individual cases.  As a Mariners fan, of course my favorite case is with Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr., who were both stars, both played for the M’s and Red, and played together.   There’s also the 1992 Upper Deck “Bloodlines” card featuring Ken Sr., Junior, and his brother Craig (a minor leaguer in the M’s system who played at various levels, including Triple-A Tacoma).  Sometimes it really is in the blood, huh?
