Note that tuples were designed for that sort of 'mini-object' use (and
were not intended primarily as immutable lists).

lines = [('fred','333','0,10'), ('sam','444','1'), ('fred','333','0,50')]


though of course it's no disaster if you end up with a list of
3-element lists instead of 3-tuples, if it's convenient to build the
list with zip or whatever.
