They probably figure that if they get these brands (some of which aren't well-known to most of the gaming public now) out there to buy cheap, then people will be familiarised with them and sequels could come from that eventually.
If they released a completely new game with the Monaco GP name on it now, most would have no idea of the history behind it. Sega has a lot of IP, but not all of it is powerful enough now to get good sales since it's been lying dormant for so long. This way they get the names back out there and test the water without making a massive loss sinking resources into a new game in a series no-one knows about anymore.
