Tim Duncan Raises $60K for Charity with Custom Punisher Car

The Punisher is primarily known for taking down criminals through extreme measures, but thanks to NBA superstar Tim Duncan, his symbol has been used for a much more optimistic cause.

As reported by Sports Illustrated, the San Antonio Spurs veteran has raffled the custom Punisher-themed car — a 2013 Dodge Challenger — crafted by his BlackJack Speed Shop for charity, earning $60,000 for ChildSafe, a child abuse prevention and treatment non-profit located in San Antonio.

The car — and Duncan himself — appeared on a retailer variant cover of Marvel’s “The Punisher” #11, released last year and illustrated by Mike Choi. At the time the cover was released, it was announced the plan was to auction the car to benefit a San Antonio-based charity.


The raffle winner, Vicky Mills, received the car on Monday, before the Spurs beat the Minnesota Timberwolves — the latest home victory for the Spurs, who are undefeated in San Antonio thus far this season.
