    A great use of your collections! It was very interesting – I have always assumed the connection between TC Bear and the Hamm’s Bear. Was it ever an issue the Twins publicly acknowledged?

    Matt Anderson reply on December 20th, 2011:

    T.C. himself was asked about the Hamm’s connection in a June 2005 interview with the Star Tribune (seriously!). He more or less dodged the question.

    What an interesting way to give the public a glimpse into your collections! Thanks!
