The Reds had a Hall of Fame exhibit set up, and although we did not spend more then about 15 minutes in there, it was a very neat thing to see. There was a heavy emphasis on the World Champion 1990 Reds.
This was as close as we’ve ever been to the World Series trophy. Well, scratch that. Back at our first Redsfest in 1996, we saw the three World Series Trophies as well. Oh how we took that moment for granted. As a kid, you think your team will end up with a pile of these, you know? Little did we know that some 13 or 14 years later we’d still be lusting over 1990. One guy was talking about that 1990 team when they stepped on the main stage for the 20 year reunion and he said it was one of the greatest things to happen in his life. While some might say that is pathetic, we imagine we’d be saying the same thing if the 2010 Reds pulled off something like that.
These are game worn uniforms from the 1990 World Series. That is pretty bad ass. Notice the patches? It’s the little things.
