    Gotta be the rainbow!

    Hey, can anyone find pictures of these somewhere so we can take a look at them all?

      I had to go with the simple look of the Colt .45's. As fun as the rainbow uniforms are now to marvel at, when they were donning them everyday it got to be quite an eyesore. It's too bad Oscar Gamble never played for them. Could you imagine him in a rainbow uniform?

        If you go to http://www.astrosdaily.com/ and scroll down to the bottom right hand corner there is a link that says "baseball card gallery". Click on that and it will show you the cards for every player every year of the Astros' existence. Not only is it fun to see the changing uniforms, but the changing hairstyles as well.

          Thanks, Commish! I wish I had seen that first. I would've voted for the shoulder rainbow because right now the rainbow uniforms look pretty awful!

            I might just be me, but I really like their current ones, except for the alternate caps, uniforms...

              Putting the Colt .45 uniforms on this poll was a no brainer for me.

              Commish,do you think Oscar Gamble would look better in the rainbow than he did in the red Indians and White Sox pajama jerseys?

                  .45's is the best but the best ASTRO'S design is the shooting star...

                    Colt 45s, hands down

                    Since this is titled "favorite Astros uniforms," the Colt .45s technically don't qualify ... But they are my favorite, no doubt ... Shooting Star from the late 60s, early 70s is a close 2nd.

                    You can have everything since McLane took over and started changing colors/logos every 3 seasons in some ill-advised attempt to increase his merchandising bottom line.

                      Tell me it wouldn't have been even cooler last night if Wagner pitched the 9th wearing that jersey.

                        Wow, excellent point. That would have been cool. I hate almost all the retro jerseys the teams wear these days (see 1979 Pirate retreads), but Wagner running to first in that Colt jersey would have looked sharp.

                          Reminds me of my favorite Gary Thorne moment from the no-hitter the other night.When Wagner struck out Posada in the 9th.Thorne said that Wagner took something off that pitch.Just so Gary Thorne knows,that was a 99mph fastball Wagner busted inside.

                            Well, if nothing else, at least Gary Thorne does know his hockey. I would actually rather listen to him broadcast a baseball game over McCarver,Berman, or Chip Caray any night.

                              I agree Commish.I remember him when did White Sox games in 1989.Probably his greatest moment as a Sox announcer in '89 is when he held color analyst Tom Paciorek to his word when Paciorek promised that he would shave his head if the Sox went on a 8-game winning streak comong out of the All-Star break.Keep in mind that the Sox had the worst record in baseball at the '89 break.I believe they were 29-56(?).So they started the second half 8-0 capped off with a doubleheader sweep at Fenway.The next night at Comiskey,SportsChannel did a 30 minute pre-game special leading up to Pacoirek getting his head shaved.In all retrospect,that was probably the highlight of the 1989 season,other than the local Fox station suing the White Sox because of low ratings.They were the flagship station at the time.
