Baseball Shirt pocket genesis?

I was just told that the reason that shirt pockets were "invented" was so that when you receive a business card from someone, you could put it away - and "keep it close to your heart."

Alternatively, it is horribly rude to put said business card in your rear pants pocket, as you are telling them that you figuratively wipe your bottom with them.

This was related to me as having to do with the Japanese culture - but the guy didn't seem to know why.

Any help?
