For collectors who have children old enough to appreciate the hobby, The National always seems to be a destination for building that bond. Again, this place has a way of being magical in so many ways.

While we’ve definitely come across our fair share of other parent-child combinations, the most prevalent pairs at the show are father-son duos. Walking the aisles, waiting in lines and paying way too much for convention center food (conveniently located, but inconveniently priced), these genetically-linked teams are part of the hobby’s greater family tree.

Here, we see a few two-generation tandems keeping the tradition alive.

For a dramatic effect, try re-watching the video above, but muted and with this Peter Gabriel great playing at the same time.

    I wished they had something like that here in Okinawa, Japan. This makes me miss the States and all the things that I would love to do with my kids like take them out to a ball game again or to one of these shows. Who knows, maybe one of these days we will eventually make it back there and go to one of these.
