I guess what I am talking about is there were more items that gave tribute to the WS teams of 75' and 76'. If you go to Ebay and look for items that gave tribute to the 75' and 76' teams you will see many different items. But if you do the same for the 90' Reds you see very few items. I am an avid collector of the 75' and 76' team and of the 90' team but the 90' team has very few items that paid tribute to the team that the 75/76 team had. I don't see how the 90' team catching so many people by suprise had anything to do with it. I mean in the summer of 75' you couldn't design or plan on marketing an item for the team had they won the 75' series till they won it. The 90' team was in first place the entire year so using that logic the marketers should have been designing WS items for a potential Reds WS championship, but they didnt.
