Eli Manning may be retired, but he is still coming through in the clutch.

The former Giants quarterback announced on Tuesday he is participating in the All In Challenge — a COVID-19 fundraiser for those who are in need of food — and he is giving away quite the prize:

His 2012 Super Bowl MVP Corvette.

“I will actually come and hand-deliver this to whom wins it,” he said in a video accepting the challenge. “We’ll get to hang out for a little bit, chat, I’ll get to meet your friends and family, maybe go out to lunch, and maybe I’ll teach you how to handle this bad boy.”

Manning was challenged by his brother, Peyton, who was offering a chance to play a round of golf with him.

The All In Challenge was started by Fanatics executive chairman Michael Rubin, who is also co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils.

It has become a way for celebrities to offer a one-in-a-lifetime experience with 100 percent of the funds raised to be donated directly to charities who are providing food for those in need.

More than $6.5 million has already been raised.

Manning’s Corvette is part of the auction prizes, and the bidding will begin at $80,000.

Other auctions include a one-on-one batting lesson with Alex Rodriguez and a replica of his 2009 World Series trophy, as well as a Giants game, dinner and workout with Saquon Barkley.
