My kid has a bunch of the Red Sox and it got me wondering how many of these exist.

Are they still being made?

Does anyone know where I can find checklist for each year they made them?

Did all the Lineups came with a card?
Were the cards issued by themselves?
Is it possible to acquire a set of cards without the figures?

No, but there are other brands that are similar (McFarlane, etc)

Beckett actually lists them online. The cards are actually under the individual sports as well.

Did all the Lineups came with a card?
No, but the vast majority did aside from the special pieces.

Were the cards issued by themselves?
Not to my knowledge

Is it possible to acquire a set of cards without the figures?
A lot of people opened them up (obviously) to play with or display them...the cards are out there in circulation. If you want them individually, I would check sportslots. Otherwise, you may be able to find a 'set' on ebay by year, team, etc.

In my experience, they were produced 1987-2001 in baseball.

Far from an expert, but I answered to the best of my ability....hope it helps.

Did all the Lineups came with a card? I have never seen a regular figure w/o cards. Some of the speciality pieces like Headliners, Stadium Stars, Freeze Frame, etc didn't. A couple years offered 2 cards (90 and 93) and 91s came with coins as well.
Were the cards issued by themselves? no. There were posters in 1992 that could be ordered separately, containing the cards in a sheet, possibly other years but not sure. They had baseballs you could get one year as well w/ facsimile autos.
Is it possible to acquire a set of cards without the figures? People break up the figures all the time. Good luck finding complete sets with the cards/figures, let alone just the cards though.

I can't remember when Kenner stopped, but 01 sounds about right. The first year was 88 though, no 87 SLUs.
