VINTAGE HOUSTON COLT 45s SNAPBACK CAP
952

The Houston Colt .45s were the predecessor to the modern day Houston Astros. Their short lived professional life spanned from 1962-1964 with poor performances. Interestingly enough, their team name was chosen from a “Name the Team” contest as the Colt .45 was the “Gun that won the West”. Coincidently, the Colt .45s also played in Colt Stadium before moving to the Astrodome in 1965. Thereafter they changed their name to the Astros due to Houston being the home of the United States space program.

This Vintage Colt .45 snapback features a bold illustration of the team complete with the gun of the same name. The hat comes complete with a Green under bill as well. Get this now while supplies last at www.flightclubny.com.
