Clyde Doepner - Minnesota Twins Curator
Jerseys and Memorabilia: "How do I know it is real?"

Hear from Clyde Doepner, born and raised in North St. Paul, Minnesota. He began collecting Twins memorabilia at an early age, and his collection was enhanced by a personal friendship with former Twins owner Cal Griffith. He has displayed items from his collection yearly at Twinsfest since its inaugural show in 1989, and he travels extensively throughout Twins Territory, setting up displays and giving presentations utilizing Twins memorabilia. In 1999 Clyde became the first “full-time” curator in Major League baseball with a job description that included collecting, preserving, displaying, archiving, listing, labeling and giving tours of Target Field. He assists fellow historians and authors on baseball-related projects, and has written numerous articles about Twins' history and collecting in general
