On October 17, 1960, the National League granted an expansion franchise to the Houston Sports Association to begin play for the 1962 season. The new Houston team was named the Colt .45s after a "Name The Team" contest was won by William Irving Neder. The Colt .45 was known as "the gun that won the west." Although the nickname only lasted for two seasons before they became the Astros, the Colt .45s retain the legacy of one of the best professional sports nicknames of all time.
This tee is part of a special collection in collaboration with @Super70sSports - the best vintage sports twitter account in the game.
Our Colt .45s tee was crafted with the intention of being the softest shirt in your lineup. Made with a blend of fabrics including high quality combed and ring spun cotton, our tee is cut for a modern fit and printed with water-based inks that actually blend into the fabrics giving it more character with every wash.
