Sounds pretty close. Here is what the scrap book looks like that these were cut from. The scrap book still doesn't explain where the images came from. There are plenty of publications you can grab for a few bucks loaded with images of Ruth, Dimaggio, Gehrig, etc.

Or the ultra rare jockstrap box theory might be right?
