    Steroid Related Original Mixed Media Baseball Art. Offered is a 14" x 11" mixed media piece of art making light of the steroid era in Major League Baseball. The piece is inspired by mid century baseball magazine advertisements featuring Charles Atlas selling vitamins to give you the perfect physique. The word "Palco" a play on Balco is at the top of the work. Along the left four colored circles show the faces of Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Hack Wilson, and Ty Cobb. Underneath each face a word is printed spelling out "Break All The Records!" Towards the upper right four men pose who appear to be clowns with face makeup and foam noses. Initials and cities are below each figure, B.B San Francisco, S.S. Chicago, R.P. Baltimore, and M.M. St Louis. The Charles Atlas figure has been changed to a Victor Conte(head of Balco) look alike renamed "Prictor Conte". A 42 year old man named Barry from San Francisco has begun filling out the form for the "Vitamins" that will help him Break All The Records. An original work form artist Grant Smith.
