A Houston Astros Throwback Jersey carries with it all the history from the teams entrance to the National league in 1962 to winning the World Series title in 2017. Originally named the Houston Colt .45s, the Astros joined the league the same year as the New York Mets. Only three years later, they changed their name to the Houston Astros, after Houston’s role in housing the command center for US space flight missions. Houston, we do not have a problem.
Their name change also came with a stadium change- the Astros now called the Astrodome home. The Houston Astrodome was the world’s first domed sports stadium, and was home to the Astros until 1999. In the years in between it was a great way for Houston’s residents to escape the South Texas humidity and enjoy a baseball game in comfort. During that time, it was also home to Houston’s NFL team, the Oilers. Vintage Astros Jerseys look right at home in the stadium’s once futuristic aesthetic, but the stadium is currently undergoing renovation.
It’s not just the stadium that made the Astros famous, a Nolan Ryan Jersey is a must have for aspiring pitchers and die-hard Astros fans. Ryan is still the all-time leader in pitching no-hitters, with 7. Though he also played for the New York Mets, California Angels, and the Texas Rangers, Ryan, A.K.A. the Ryan Express, is an executive adviser to the Houston Astros to this day. If you’re looking for an Astros retro jersey, a Nolan Ryan jersey is a great place to start.
