Default The "New" Houston Astros Uniforms

Looks retro to me.

Hats are great! SF needs to sue for them stealing their colors!

I like the fact they went back to the old style for the hats. Cool looking jerseys too.

Seriously, other than the name on the front they are identical almost.

This means Roger Clemens will be wearing "retro" styled jerseys next year... I like it. I like it.

The astros, if they can get one thing right, really do the throwback jerseys really well. The best of the year were the Colt .45's. Plus you gotta love those rainbow jerseys to . There are only a couple throwbacks I would consider buying that are not for my hometown team and those would be the Houston Colt .45s and the San Diego Charger powder blues

They don't look anything like SF's hat to me, but I remember these as the Astros hats from when I was a kid.

As they say, everything old is new again.

I love the uniforms and wish all teams (except the Padres) would go back to their 80s uniforms. Especially the Brewers and Phillies.

The one one thing that bugs me here, is that no one can seem to ever come up with something new and fresh. Look at the Camaro, Mustang, Astros .... drives me nuts. Oh well. I'm ok with the new look. Might make some of the Astros hats i'm trying to sell, difficult. Other than that ... no qualms here!

The previous Astros uniform was fresh and new and I hated it!
