Fat Bat

Being free to sell art since winning my fight with the IRS, I arranged for a presentation of the Fat Bat to Hank Aaron at Dodger Stadium. Then I proposed that Hank co-sign an edition of 715 Fat Bats with me, the number of homers he hit to break Babe Ruth's home run record. I argued that if Marcel Duchamp had co-signed an over-sized bat with the Babe, Norman Brokaw and all the other agents at the William Morris Agency couldn't afford one today. Brokaw told me I was competing with Magnavox. I needed a million dollars, good faith money. I wonder how much Duchamp invested in Brancusi.
