A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

The largest dust cloud ever on a card?

Dust clouds frozen on cardboard have always been a favorite of mine.  I have never collected them, nor do I intend to start, but I have always looked for the new dust clouds that appear with each new year's cards.  For the longest time, I have always assumed that the classic 1987 Topps Kevin Mitchell rookie (seen below) was the largest dust cloud ever captured in time.

With my most recent purchase from Sportlots, I believe I now have a new candidate for the title of largest dust cloud on a card, 1996 Score Vinny Castilla.

Not only do you get a huge dust cloud, but you also get a cameo from an NFL Hall of Famer.  Very, very pleasing to the eye.

Do any of you have any other candidates that might be even bigger than the Castilla?  Are there any card features that you really like, but don't collect?

Thanx for reading.

Sorry that I can't help with the "dust cloud" collection... but those are two very cool cards. I'm starting to think I should put a binder together of cards that don't have a ton of value... but have awesome photos. These two cards would definitely be in it. Thanks for sharing.
