While in Chicago during Christmas, Mr. T lost his shoe. Help him find his shoe in the many photos of Mr. T in Chicago at spudart.org/christmas!
I bought a handmade Mr. T doll off eBay in 2000 as a joke. The amount of detail is quite surprising on this doll. Apparently someone in the 80s made a blueprint for crafters to make these dolls, so there’s hundreds of variations of these Mr. T dolls around.
Whenever I carry him around in public, people love him!
He was the only item I took home with me on September 11, 2001 when we evacuated the Tribune Tower. When someone in my department would go on vacation, Mr. T would sit in their chair and fill in for their role while they were gone. When I was laid off by Tribune in December 2005, he was the last item I brought home with me.
For Christmas 2000, I made Mr. T the focus of my Christmas card.
