It's got nothing to do with making various groups feel good. Vintage jerseys aren't sold to make old people feel good. Bobbleheads aren't sold to make people with enormous craniums feel good. They're sold because people want to buy them. That's why the Reds are selling Rojos shirts. And it never ends. It's merchandising.
FWIW, I'm with savafan, I like the shirt. It's basically the BP jersey, which I prefer to the actual jersey.
