San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan has raised $60,000 for a child abuse charity by raffling off a 2013 Dodge Charger associated with one of the weirdest team-up comics ever made.
In 2013, Duncan and his BlackJack Speed Shop were featured in a special promotional issue of The Punisher. In the story, Frank Castle asks the garage to build him a custom car -- and when the comic came out, Duncan and company had also built the car in real life.

Here's how the Spurs described the vehicle:
The 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T was donated to the Tim Duncan Foundation by GUNN Automotive Group and turned over to BlackJack Speed Shop for customization. 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.
CBSSports.com reports that Duncan and BlackJack raffled off the car, with winner Vicky Mills taking ownership of the car before yesterday's Spurs game. The raffle earned $60,000 for San Antonio's Childsafe.
