Holy Molar! Collector Keeps Corey Haim's Tooth

MINNEAPOLIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – After Hollywood chewed him up and spit him out, late ’80s icon Corey Haim made money selling his body.

Michael Kronick runs Startifacts, a memorabilia store that slangs weird celebrity stuff.

In the ’90s, Haim would often show up to Kronick’s office with personal items to sell in order to make a quick buck.

That included his costumes from The Lost Boys, autographed pictures, and even his molar – removed after a visit to the dentist.

Kronick says the tooth never sold, and he still has it hanging in a frame, “roots and all.”

He also has a bag full of Haim’s hair, obtained right after a haircut.

In the wake of Haim’s death, Kronick thinks the value of his hair and tooth will skyrocket, and he’s willing to part with it – for the right price.

He wants to give proceeds from the molar to Haim’s mother and help fund his old buddy’s funeral.
