In 2012, NBA legend and comic book fan Tim Duncan and his BlackJack Speed Shop were featured in an issue of his favorite comic book The Punisher. In the story the hero asks Duncan and his garage to build him a custom car, and not only did they complete the order on the page, they made one in real life as well.
Now Duncan and BlackJack have raffled off the souped-up 2013 Dodge Challenger and in the process raised $60,000 for Childsafe, a San Antonio charity which caters to victims of child abuse, according to CBSSports.com.
The vehicle includes a full custom wrap, custom-built crash bars and LED lights. The dash of the vehicle is signed by Duncan, “The Punisher” publisher Stan Lee and artist Mike Choi. The car, along with Duncan were featured on the cover of “The Punisher” comic book in 2012.
The raffle was won by Vicky Mills, who received the car before the Spurs’ Monday night victory over the Timberwolves.
