If you go by folklore, Howe's the best in the league since Coleman.
I think essendon people seem to write a lot of folklore .. if Howe isnt the best high mark in VFL/AFL history then I'm a monkey's uncle....and I better be careful using that expression. People talk about blokes like Michael Roach and Peter Bosustow, but they used to do it a couple of times a season. No is better than Howe

Howe the best I've seen in my time watching the Pies. He does it more regularly than just about anyone I can recall. There have been some great marks over the years, Ablett, Barker, Knights, et al but even with them it was rare they'd take marks equal of the quality of Howe's multiple times a year.

Picken the next best Collingwood player although Elliott pre-back injury was challenging that.

The Knights, Barker, Picken era was elite.

Daicos took an incredible mark against Fitzroy in 1990 and another one the week he played in the reserves at Victoria park in the mid 80s.
He took a great one v Geelong in the last quarter of the 1980 Prelim and it ended up in the annual report for the year. He kicked a point afterwards unfortunately.
