Remaining 2017 SGA Starting Lineup Baseball Figures

When I first started putting this site together a few years ago… I thought it would be a fun little side project where I could teach my kids some things with website development while showing them something I loved as a kid as well. I didn’t expect Starting Lineup Figures to become a thing again.

I never thought my son would get excited when he saw a SLU figure was planned for his favorite team – Jamies Winston – yep, a Tampa Bay fan living in Green Bay… the joys of being 8… it reminded me of when I was excited to go hunt for the likes of Derek Jeter or Marty Cordova SLU rookies in the mid 90’s.

Sentimentalism aside, it’s been a busy year for baseball Starting Lineup figures – with a whole bunch of stadium giveaway’s that took place this season. With that said, here is a full list of the Starting Lineup baseball figures that have been, or will be, released in 2017.
