Not too fond of the "Astros" jersey lettering, but it is throwback-inspired, clean, and it will probably grow on me. Looks better on the players than in photos. My other annoyance is the Mets-like lettering on the back, and all Astros fans hate the Mets. I do like that the outer ring on the sleeve logo is orange or blue depending on the jersey set.

This warmup jersey with 70's rainbow flanks is especially impressive.

I like it. Combined with the changes the Blue Jays, Orioles, and Mets made in 2012, I like that teams are embracing their heritage and finally moving away from the black alternates/trim. IMO, the SOX are the only team that really gets away with the black alternate/trim due to their color scheme.

For awhile there it was really bad. The A's, Blue Jays, Marlins, Mets, Rockies, Giants, etc. were all wearing black alternates. In contrast, I love the new A's gold alternate and the Blue Jays blue alternate.
