With Mother’s Day just passed and Father’s Day on the radar, we figured now might be the time for the latest Beckett 20 Questions.

Oh, and the upcoming Families Issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly had a bit to do with that, too, where we’ll explore the family ties that go along with sports and collecting and take a look at some of the notable fathers, sons, mothers and daughters who share cardboard with us all. (Need a player checklist or OPG? Click here for our new player directory to find it fast.)

    I’d like to add Shawon Dunston Sr. and Shawon Dunston Jr to the family list. :) Although I can see why they weren’t included, because Jr has yet to reach the majors.

    The families lists are far from comprehensive. They are a selection of a few bigger or historically significant ones based on multiple generations or contributions to the game.

    Plus, I can see why you included the families you did, Chris; because the question is which family is most collectable. Not the best or biggest baseball family. Even though the Hairstons have the biggest baseball family with five, any one of the five are hardly deemed collectable. Although one that would be collectable are Prince Fielder and Cecil Fielder.

    And yes, it would be impossible to list all the baseball families. Wikipedia lists 203 father/son combinations!
