Indeed, they’re going to look downright Houston Astros-y. This sneak peak from Sportslogos.net:
They got it from a tipster, and they got confirmation that several months ago a minor league team teased the design, which may suggest New Era has been working on it for a bit.
I think it’s OK. Certainly more imaginative than the standard stars and stripes logos they’ve been using for the past few years. I actually think the fact that these are far removed from the team’s usual designs is a good thing. The older ones fall in some sort of weird uncanny valley in which they’re so close to the old designs that they make you think they are the old designs with just a little something . . . off. If you’re going to go in another direction, go definitively in another direction, ya know?
