Hmmm... just educated guesses here, but I'd say:
24 - is the traditional Legion membership cap (if they go to 25 they get hit with high taxes. That's the story where Superboy left the team for the first time)
31 - as in "31st century"
58 - another riff on "1958," the year of the Legion's debut.
199 - I have no idea on this one. The only thing that comes to mind is the fact that the double-page spread in Legion of 3 Worlds supposedly had 200 Legionnaires depicted, so - perhaps - at the time of those titles being made there had been, to date, 199 different Legionnaires across different boots? That's just a guess.
