Re: 70's & 90's Memorabilia
I'd imagine it's because the BRM was a much better team. The Reds were a factor for a full decade in the '70s, giving plenty of opportunity for Reds merchandising, whereas the 1990 team was lightning in a bottle. That was a team that had a losing record the year before and the year after winning the title. When the discussion of greatest team ever happens, the BRM is featured front and center. The 1990 Reds, not so much. There wasn't much point in bringing out a bunch of Reds items in 1991, when they were slogging their way to a 74-88 record, which set the mark for worst by a defending champ until the Marlins dismantled their team after winning in 1997.
