One “Breaking Bad” fan is now the proud owner of a very intimate piece of TV history after paying almost $10,000 for actor Bryan Cranston’s tighty-whities.

The white underwear worn by Cranston’s meth-making character Walter White on the show’s pilot went under the hammer and raised a staggering $9,900.

The sale, held over 10 days in New Mexico, gave avid viewers the chance to own part of the drama.

Other items which pulled in major amounts included White’s inscribed edition of poetry book “Leaves of Grass,” which sold for $65,000, while a Cadillac from the show pulled in $19,750 and the pivotal pink teddy bear earned another $23,250.

In total, the auction raised around $1 million, which will benefit the Goodwill of New Mexico programs.
