Minnesota Twins Primary Logo 1961 – 1975
1961 - 1975
Illustrator Ray Barton 1930 – 2010 created the iconic image of Twins “Minnie” and “Paul” wearing baseball uniforms bearing the initials of Minneapolis and St. Paul shaking hands over the Mississippi river on a light blue design of the state Minnesota late in 1960. Whatever the case, Griffith decided to turn the drawing into the team’s official logo. Barton was paid $15 for his artwork.
