Thousands of Astros fans waited outside Academy for 2017 World Series gear

Astros fans crowded a Houston Academy store in hopes of being the first to snag historical World Series merch.

HOUSTON - The Astros historic World Series win last night brought joy to all Astros fans, but it also brought lots of sales to Academy Sports and Outdoors, the Astros official sporting goods retailer. 

In Houston alone, thousands of fans lined up outside Academy stores to be some of the first to be decked out in the official 2017 World Series gear. Some fans even waited for more than four hours while another fan crossed off game seven on a poster keeping track of the Astros' victories. 

 

 

Academy employees pulled an all-nighter opening boxes of the official T-shirts, hats and other gear for fans wanting to sport their Astros pride as soon as possible.

If you are not a fan of long lines, you can find the official World Series gear on the Academy website.

The shirts retail at $28 while the hats come in at $32.
