Astros spokesperson Meshach Sullivan has confirmed the rapper has designed three New Era-brand ballcaps exclusively for the team store.
The Astros released a Twitter post of the caps, adding only 150 of the navy suede caps with an Astros’ golden H-star logo were made, along with 713 white-orange bill and navy-gold bill caps. Eager Houston Astros fans waited for a lot of mornings to induce their hands on some rare merchandise.
The ‘Stros and rapper Bun B collaborated on three new baseball caps that went on sale Thursday. ABC13’s Erica Simon met with the eager Astros fans who lined up since early morning to get the new Bun B hats. The sale was set to start at one p.m., but fans at the front of a line waited since 8 a.m. to get in on the Bun B designs. For their efforts, though, fans got every hat available. Fittingly, there were 713 of the white-orange and navy-gold bill hats available for the release.
Those were both being sold in a snapback and fitted styles. A snapback was $35 while a fitted was valued at $45. A rarer navy suede cap with a solid gold H was being offered, but only 150 hats in that style were available. This hat also had the words “Trill OG,” a reference to Bun B, in gold to match the H. According to the prices listed on Bun B’s Instagram page, the rare cap had a $281 price tag
“People lined up for hours to get their hands on @BunBTrillOG’s limited edition @astros hats today. 713 orange|white and blue|gold versions were made. There’s only 150 of the blue suede, which cost $281 in honor of one of Houston’s area codes” Erica Simon tweeted. His followers might have rubbed others the incorrect means, however, he has stayed faithful to the groups he loves.
