    Not athletes for different teams. If the Rockets change their logo, Jose Altuve isn't going to show up somewhere wearing it. Why would the Astros be giving yet to be released merch to Owen Daniels? Some in the Astros organization may have seen it but there's no reason for the organization to give out samples before the reveal and risk the logo/jerseys being leaked.

    Almost looks like it might be a pink H, which would make sense as it's Breast Cancer Awareness month.

    If that were the case I'm sure you would've seen these caps around town. It's clearly a Houston Astros hat in Texans colors. Why are we still trying to over-analyze this?

    Apparently it's an older model (based on price) of the New Era 59FIFTY in black. The star is red not pink. No alalysis needed, just color proofing. Didn't see an option for Texans colors. http://www.wholesalehats-cheapcaps.com/houston-astros-hats-black-ha-002-917.html[​IMG]

    I just saw Daniels in Rice Village about an hour ago, he was wearing the same hat, so I think it's just a hat he wears

    Those are epic. But I don't think those are it, based on some of the comments from people-who-know-people earlier in this thread.

    Hope I'm wrong. I really dig 'em.

    I put this together based on all the reports, rumors, leaks etc. I expect we'll see something very close next week.

    Your ALTs are favoring the wrong color. And your rainbows are misplaced.

    But... pretty, pretty darn close, otherwise.

    seems like such a minor change that they may as well just have used the old logo. although i guess they'd sell slightly less "new" logo merch if that was the case.

    To be fair, bringing back retro logos with minor changes seems to be the popular trend these days as both the Blue Jays and Orioles have also done it. I think it's the right move and it seems like most people on twitter agree.
