I’ve speculated for months as to what the Houston Astros Nike City Connect Jersey would look like, and now, it’s finally here. Let’s take a look. I’ll be reviewing the hat and the jersey separately, before following up with an overall grade of the combination.
Here are my thoughts on the Astros Nike City Connect hats.
The hat keeps the usual star H logo in its place, with a tequila sunrise gradient color scheme. It also adds an orbiting object, rotating around the star, maybe this is the Game 6 Jorge Soler home run ball.
The side of the hat showcases an orange patch with “ASTROS” spelled out in the NASA-like font. In my opinion, this is one of the best hats in franchise history, as it manages to incorporate not only the city of Houston and its space history, but also the jersey history of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
I don’t think the Astros could have done a better job on this hat, besides maybe adding a green bill on the inside.
