It occurs to me that you can save yourself the grep and just check for the readability of a specific path that won't exist unless the SD card is mounted.

Code:
if [ -r "/media/mmc1/systemBackups" ]; then
It may make more sense to check for the path you want to operate on than to check for the mere existence of a microSD. Oh, and if you ever need to know what you've physically got on the system BEFORE it gets mounted, you could try /proc/partitions.

or just "df" and see if /dev/mmcblk1p1 is mounted anywhere. It should be /media/mmc1/
