Major League Baseball (MLB) Lineup Card Collection

About our MLB Lineup Card Collection: As of the end of the 2018 season, we have collected 21 lineup cards from MLB games.  Seventeen of the cards are from games we went to, and we got the cards from coaches or stadium/team employees.  The other four lineup cards were given to us by team employees.  

(in order of when we got the lineup card, starting with most recent)
