Clyde Doepner probably has the world’s largest collection of Minnesota Twins’ memorabilia. Now, he’s got a job with the team.
When he wasn’t teaching school, you could probably find Clyde Doepner hunting for the next addition to his huge and varied collection of Minnesota Twins memorablia.
Other times, he was just looking at everything he had.
Over time, the club began to appreciate him as more than just another collector. His knowledge of team history made him a ‘go-to-guy’ when they needed to borrow memorabilia or had a question.
As they move into a new stadium this season, the Twins set aside an office for him.
Doepner is now the team’s official archivist and historian. It’s a nice gig for a guy who probably doesn’t see it as a job.
