When I was a teenager, I used to go to a lot of Mets games. After one game in 1987, as I was walking to the Long Island Railroad platform, I noticed this guy over by a chain-link fence selling oil paintings of Mets players. There was a crowd gathered around him, checking out the portraitures of Lenny Dykstra and Mookie Wilson. He was asking $35 apiece. People were buying. A thought popped into my head.
