A New Mexico man is attempting to collect every single card ever printed from current Los Angeles Dodgers bench coach Tim Wallach’s playing career, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Corey Stackhouse is on a quest to collect what he estimates is around 15 million cards printed over Wallach’s 17-year career, which saw him spend 13 seasons with the Expos, four more with the Dodgers, along with a half season with the Angels.

Stackhouse’s interest in the corner infielder began when he saw his card in a pack he purchased as a child and his father noted that he was a good player who had the same name as Stackhouse’s brother Tim.

The 35-year-old lawyer told the Times that he knows his goal is quixotic, but he enjoys the hunt anyway.

"Not the place I'm trying to get to so much," he said, "it's the trip."

Stackhouse’s collection currently includes 15,744 cards, including at least one of the 373 cards featuring Wallach ever printed, as well as souvenir cups, advertisements, stickers and coins adorned with the five-time All-Star’s visage.
