I had no problem running that command in Mathematica under 
Windows XP.  You didn't say what platform you were using.)

The tick mark labvels were the larger size as requested without 
overlapping one another, both at the default image size and even when I 
reduced the image size considerably.  Eventually, of course, if you 
sufficiently shrink the image size, then the tick mark labels will 
overlap -- no matter what the setting for FontSize.

By any chance were you recreating a Plot output in a notebook where the 
image size had already been reduced, either manually or by a non-default 
value of ImageSize?
