Ted Irvine

Ted Irvine - NHL player with baseball reference on hockey card

The card: 1968/69 Topps

What it says about baseball: "Besides hockey, Ted has played baseball, football and tennis."


The story:


Here's an early hockey card with a baseball reference and accompanying image. Ted Irvine grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba excelling in a number of sports, including baseball and hockey. Irvine spent a decade in the NHL, playing well over 700 games. He dressed for the Bruins, Kings, Rangers and Blues. He excelled in hockey but appears to have only played baseball recreationally.
Ted is perhaps most notable for having a famous son who excelled in something unrelated to hockey. Ted's son is famous wrestler Chris Jericho.
