Default Baseball team photos to promote newspaper sales?

I have recently come across a seller who is promoting major league baseball team photos and other multi-player photos from the 1920's era and is stating that they were housed in a visible location at newstands in the 1920's to promote newspaper sales. They seem to be mostly adhered to a cardboard backing and include the newspaper's own credit somewhere in the bottom portion of the team photo.

Has anyone ever heard of these types of items, which seem to measure around 13" X 16"? I have heard of Illustrated Current News premiums (mainly offered by Columbia City Collectibles) but I think that they are something different. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I could be totally wrong and all it would take is 1 second of seeing these in person, but I am a bit skeptical of these. Not that they are repros as I am sure they are real to the period, but I would be worried they are printed items like from the photo section of old newspapers that were pasted to backings and not "real" photos. They did used to hang things up to promote the days events at newsstands (I have and still own several of them) so they are probably real, but most likely printed from what I have seen just like the newspapers were printed. Once again though, just a complete guess without actually seeing one in person.

I've also seen those types of items in reputable auctions, but have not seen one in person. I had no reason to believe they weren't legitimate.
