Delete obsolete not deleting older than recovery window - Oracle 10.2.0.4

I am trying to clean up our RMAN catalog. We have records since 2008 and our recovery window is set to 60 days. When I did "delete obsolete" it deleted a few records but again when I do 'list backup' I see records from 2008. There are 66242 objects when I do 'crosscheck backup'. Can I get some advice as to how to get rid of the older backups.

Crosschecked 66242 objects


RMAN> report obsolete;

RMAN retention policy will be applied to the command
RMAN retention policy is set to recovery window of 60 days
no obsolete backups found

RMAN> show all;

RMAN configuration parameters are:
CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO RECOVERY WINDOW OF 60 DAYS;
CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION OFF; # default
CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK; # default
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '/backups/xxx_rman/%F';
CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 1 BACKUP TYPE TO BACKUPSET; # default
CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
CONFIGURE MAXSETSIZE TO UNLIMITED; # default
CONFIGURE ENCRYPTION FOR DATABASE OFF; # default
CONFIGURE ENCRYPTION ALGORITHM 'AES128'; # default
CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG DELETION POLICY TO NONE; # default
CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/oracle/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/dbs/snapcf_xxx.f'; # default

RMAN>
