    Before they posted elaborate lineup cards on the dugout wall, they posted simple ones like these (I recently came across an old picture of the Orioles dugout with the manager hanging one of these up.

    This is undated and unsigned, but this exact lineup was only used on 5/30/1966 making dating it easy.

    Lineup featured Frank Robinson during his Triple Crown season; a year that the Orioles won the World Series.

    These are just amazing. I really like the manager signature. Just a random thought is how awesome it would be if MLB had every player on the roster sign them daily.

    That would definitely price them out of my price range pretty quickly

    A part of what I love about these is because they are not really supposed to be collectibles. They are folded and crossed out and often dirty.

    Over the last few years the teams have been looking to commercialize lineup cards (the ones on the dugout walls at the very least). I know some people love them but for me, that detracts from them.

    Itís faded, his name is hard to see (on the bench) but on 9/24/1992 Pedro Martinez made his MLB debut for the Dodgers. This was Tommy Lasordaís copy.

    I picked up a huge lot of Lasorda lineup cards. If anyone is looking for game used lineups from 1990-1996 Dodgers let me know as I have many more than Iíd be looking to keep.

    This is the first new HOFíer lineup card Iíve gotten in months. Lineup features Ted Williams in his prime, among with Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky.

    Joe McCarthy is better known for managing some of the great Yankee teams, winning 7 World Series from 1931-1946. He ended his career as the manager of the Red Sox, as shown here.

    Really pumped about this one. Itís been a pretty nice week for the collection!

    How do you store these bad boys? You always post such great pieces of baseball history. Thanks for sharing these.

    Your lineup cards are really interesting and I check all your posts to see the history you dig up on every one of these you post. I appreciate that you do this, enjoy seeing these, and am fascinated by all the tidbits you come up with on these cards. Thanks for continuing to share, your posts don't go unread!

    Thanks! One of the nice things about them is that they are actually part of the game and used by the managers (and umpires) so condition is much less of a big deal. A large percentage of managers would fold them in half (Lasorda actually kept the ones he had in his personal collection stored folded in half, likely for 20+ years....)

    I keep the better ones in large top loaders, but also have a big box full of lineup cards that are loose, since as mentioned, it is not a real concern if anything minor happens to them. (Along with the ones I post, I've picked up close to 2000 lineup cards, They are a really cheap and fun way to get a game-used collectible; many of them feature Hall-of-Fame players and/or fan favorites, you can often find one from a game with a nice home run or great pitching performance, and they usually have the manager's signatures (whether it is the top copy or a carbon copy)

    I appreciate that, and definitely enjoy doing the research on the games and finding interesting facts. For me a part of it is remembering the first game I went to. It was a game that was supremely unimportant in the grand scheme of baseball, but that specific game, there with a bunch of my extended family, was super cool. Each lineup is linked to a specific game in a very real fashion, as the lineup (and almost always the date) from the game is listed, and it was used to actually set the official lineup for the game. I think that's super cool.

    On April 25th 1995, the Dodgers played the Marlins in the 1st game after the strike that ended the 1994 baseball season.
