Default Mystery Macks

I just picked up these two Connie Macks that I've never seen before. I'm hoping one of you knows something about them. The first one is about 8x10, on card stock, and the back says it was issued by the Atlantic Refining Company. It mentions he managed the A's through 1938, so it seems like it must be from 1938 or early 1939. Is this a set of one, or are there others?

The second is a little smaller and the back says it was issued on exactly June 19, 1938. The stock is much thinner, maybe just a hair thicker than an R314. Any info on this one?

Thanks.

Google is your friend.

The first seems to be a premium from 1939.

The second is probably from Connie Mack Day in Cleveland. He was honored on that day by the Indians.

Here's another possible link to Cleveland for the 2nd Mack. The union label or bug on the back of this Mack is similar to one found on the 1945 Cleveland Indians 5x8 Team photograph. The labels both have the same number "44," which references the specific printing shop that did the work. I note they are on opposite sides of the label, though. I don't know if that is meaningful or not.
