Hat Club releases limited Houston Astros concept caps for public sale

A few weeks ago, I came across this post on the New Era forums. Apparently this was a concept for the new Houston Astros uniforms in the mid 1970s. Obviously the team never wore these but Hat Club got wind of it and started reproducing them. Now the caps are not just in-store, but also are on sale on their site as of last week.

This is the first time to my knowledge a manufacturer has produced a cap for a concept that never made it to the field. We’ve had issues with caps being recalled for political correctness reasons, but this is a first.

What’s really neat about this cap design that it actually is very 1970s and I actually like it. All three caps are available for sale on the site and I might cop the home version. Aside from the stitching on the white panel and the NE logo on the side, the underbrim is green which is pretty historically accurate.

Which one do you like the best? This, this, or this?
