1976 Topps #70 - Roy and Roy Smalley (Father & Son)

In this day and age, I think it would very improbable to have a college baseball team be as dominant as USC was in the early '70s. There are teams that are right up there every year, but winning three straight national championships would be extremely difficult.
If Topps were to do a "Father & Son" series today, how many players would be included?


  1. There are no active sons in Chicago, although Derrek Lee's uncle Leron played.
    Brian Bannister
    Josh Barfield
    Robinson Cano
    Bobby Crosby
    Chris Duncan
    Brandon Fahey
    Prince Fielder
    Ken Griffey Jr.
    Jason Grilli
    Tony Gwynn Jr.
    Jerry Hairston Jr.
    Scott Hairston
    Jason Kendall
    Adam LaRoche
    Andy LaRoche
    Gary Matthews Jr.
    Darren Oliver
    Tony Pena
    Nick Swisher

    I might have missed some.

  2. Others
    Tony Armas, Jr.
    Aaron Boone
    Jose Cruz, Jr.
    Justin Speier
    Will Venable
    Darryle Ward
    Jayson Werth
