"Norman, here, on this piece of paper, do a self-portrait for me, drink your drink, and let's call it a night." And that, according to Britton, "began all this madness."
The offered "Self-portrait" of Lew Alcindor was obtained in the mid-1960's by Britton, who told the under-age basketball star that the price of admission was to draw him a self-portrait. Measuring at 4x9.5", the toned envelope features a stick pencil drawing from Alcindor, and it is one of numerous celebrity drawings in the Britton Collection that was featured in his book "Self-Portrait: Book People Picture Themselves".
