Default My Vintage Minneapolis Millers & St. Paul Saints Collection

Over the years I primarily collected Minnesota Twins memorabilia. Now as I start switching gears, I thought I would try something NEW and create a thread to show off my Minneapolis Millers & St. Paul Saints collection as it progresses. Hope you enjoy!

Those of us who collect minor league teams can appreciate just how difficult it can be to find uniforms...those are outstanding!

c. 1958-60 Minneapolis Millers & c. 1947-60 St. Paul Saints Game Worn Caps

The Minneapolis Millers cap is signed by Bob" Riverboat" Smith, Paul Smith and Al Schroll. Has vintage writing on the leather head band that reads, "I Frozen Rabbit Track" and "Whitey Cepeda" inside the leather head band. I have been unable to identify who or what this relates to. Any ideas?

Metropolitan Stadium, Bloomington, Minnesota (1956-1981) stadium ticket booth sign!

One of my favorite artifacts in my collection - The Millers played here until they folded after the 1960 season with the arrival of the Minnesota Twins in 1961. I was able to photomatch the sign to a home video from 1980 that was posted on YouTube. You can see the exact matches to the font deficiencies throughout. There is white paint over the numerals that were changed to accommodate the price changes. Although this sign may or may not have been around when the Millers occupied the park – it still remains a unique piece from the Old “Met”
