METHUEN, Mass., April 14 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts man said he sold plaster impressions of the late musician Tiny Tim's teeth on eBay for $1,500.

Brian Blouin, 32, of Methuen, Mass., said the dentist-made impressions were purchased after five days of auction by a man in Rockwall, Texas, The Eagle-Tribune newspaper in North Andover, Mass., reported Tuesday.

"It's a unique item," Blouin said. "You usually don't see celebrity's dental impressions out on the market. Who knows? It might open up a trend."

Blouin said he met the long-haired, falsetto-voiced ukulele player at an autograph signing when he was 16. He said the musician's wife gave him the dental impressions in 1997.

"She was going to throw them out," Blouin told The Eagle-Tribune. "I just packed them in my bag and brought them back to Massachusetts."

Tiny Tim, whose real name was Herbert Khaury, died in 1996 at age 64.
