Inherited Minis

A little while ago I posted a video about some inherited I received from my brother-in-law.  As I flipped through the pages some of my favorite cards from the binders went by without me commenting on them. Among them are these great reprints of some of the most famous tobacco era cards.

While many reprints have the tobacco logo on the reverse side, these have some brief background information on each card as well as the value.  These clearly came from the same series and if I remember correctly they may have been included with a card collecting set. Did anyone else have these as a kid or maybe have more information as to where these reprints came from?

Last night I dug deep into my collection and found I had four more Honus Wagner reprints. And on the reverse side of two of them they have a red box instead of the yellow.  That is clearly from a more recent variation as the value of the card has been increased from $20,000 to $25,000.  Anyone have any clue about the origin of these cards?
