Bid on a Piece of Museum Memorabilia

The National Corvette Museum, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, holds a series of raffles as fundraisers for the Museum. In 2009 as part of the Museum expansion, a special area was created to display cars being raffled off. Behind the cars was promotional artwork, showcasing many of the raffle cars and winners. The original artwork is 9' tall and 12' wide and comes in three pieces. It is a very thick vinyl material with gloss finish. In 2016 the artwork was removed. You can be the owner of this original artwork. Artwork comes with a notarized certificate of authenticity. Proceeds benefit the Museum.

Congrats to Wayne Oplinger of Shavertown, PA - winner of our 2017 Blade Silver Stingray with ticket #915. We sold all 1,500 tickets.
