Holy Molar! Collector Keeps Corey Haim's Tooth
Corey's molar nicely framed for a waiting collector
Friday, March 12, 2010 16:28 GMTMINNEAPOLIS (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 Kronicks 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 Haims hair, obtained right after a haircut.
In the wake of Haims death, Kronick thinks the value of his hair and tooth will skyrocket, and hes willing to part with it for the right price.
He wants to give proceeds from the molar to Haims mother and help fund his old buddys funeral.
