The Toronto Raptors made history in 2019.

At Toronto Public Library, we love all things history. We preserve Toronto's history on a daily basis, including our sporting past. Even mascots can be part of that history. Enter official Raptors mascot, "The Raptor" — our lovable hype dino who makes the Energizer Bunny look low energy.

Below are photos of The Raptor from our large collection of digitized Toronto Star photos available on our Digital Archive.
