2017 Goals

Spring is officially here and a new season is upon us, even if it doesn’t feel like it given the nearly foot of snow still on the ground.

We’ve gotten some 120 lineup cards in two-plus seasons of trying, which means 1) we’ve been to a lot of baseball games the last two-plus years, and 2) we have been incredibly lucky.

We’ll be trying again in 2017 to see what lineup cards we can get.  Among some of the targets:

  • MLB
  • New leagues: one or more from the Frontier League, South Atlantic League, Midwest League, America East, Big East, etc.
  • New teams: CT Tigers (we’ve never gotten a dugout card, but there is a new manager this season), Binghamton Mets, Reading Fightin’ Phils, U. of Hartford, Fairfield U., Williamsport Crosscutters, Batavia Muckdogs, Mahoning Valley Scrappers, West Virginia Black Bears and any teams in the Frontier, South Atlantic and Midwest leagues.
  • Unique lineup cards: international teams, All-Star games, relief pitcher usage, etc.


We will also be trying to add to our collection of different baseballs.  Some of the balls we hope to get this season include:

  • Atlantic League 20th Anniversary
  • Frontier League 25th Anniversary
  • Cape Cod League 2017 ASG
  • FCBL 2017 ASG
  • NYP League 2017 ASG
  • Eastern League 2017 ASG
  • MLB: Orioles, Mariners, Braves, FL Spring Training
  • International

Now if the snow would hurry up and melt…
