Default Need some opinions, Josh Gibson Cool Papa Bell Photos

I'm not well versed in vintage photos but knew enough to pick these up when I saw them. Popped out of a scrapbook from ~Nov. 1940. They both measure 5-1/4 x 13-1/4 and are more heavy card stock. Can anyone tell me if I have something here?

I honestly have no clue, but if they aren't fantasy pieces that's an awesome find.

You pull these out of the scrapbook yourself?

Reason I ask is because I found both of these photos a few years ago(might even be the same ones) on eBay. Asked the guys on here and ended up passing on them. Same creasing, old look to them and I think we all came up with them being some very aged reprints. Can't find the thread though, but it was a couple years ago. Same exact photos

I didn't pull these myself, the person I bought them from included the page they were taken from. The reverse has newspapers clippings.

Thanks for the link to the previous thread.

They appear to be different copies of the same photos. Jury would still be out. Too bad we didn't identify the seller in the original thread.

May want to send to one of the board's experts to examine and let us all know what the deal is with these.

Also, I now see that the Gibson photo appears to have the same image as this 2001 Upper Deck card:
