ST. PAUL  (AP) - If the Legislature approves public funding for a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings, some of the biggest contributors to the effort could be Minnesota Twins fans.

The stadium bill introduced recently at the State Capitol offers a list of potential taxes, ranging from ticket fees to sales taxes in the community that hosts the team. Details remain vague, but a new Revenue Department analysis is clear on one thing: about 60 cents of every $1 the state pays for a stadium would come from one source: a 10 percent tax on sports memorabilia.

The vast majority of memorabilia tax revenue would come from the sale of Minnesota Twins merchandise -- because that's what sports fans are buying most.
