Just got these today. Houston Astros prototype "what could have been" set.

First one is the home cap shown on Tom Griffin. Second is a concept for a road cap and the third is a rail white panel with navy back alternate.

Fugly!

Maybe I'd feel differently if they ever saw the light of day but these are sick in the nasty way.

How can you hate the current H in the star? It's clean

I can see why the Astros decided to stick with the H in the star, these designs look amateurish. But at the same time it's really cool they are out and I am tempted to pick up one of these!

I remember seeing this logo long ago, and I was always reminded by hockey when I see it.
