There use to be in almost every town and city across America, but now adays finding a baseball card shop is usually slim to none, but there are a few still out there like Tim’s Baseball Card Shop in the Chicago Area. While Tim has a steady stream of customers buying sports trading cards and sports memorabilia, the last thing we would expect to see is Tim’s Baseball Card Shop in one of those expensive Super Bowl commercials.

Tim Herron, The Chicago area dealer will be one of four small American businesses featured in a spot being prepared by Miller/Coors Brewing Company to run during Super Bowl XLIV. The 30-second ad for Miller High Life will feature Herron, the owner of Tim’s Baseball Card Shop, along with the owners of Del’s Barber Shop in Escondido, Calif., Loretta’s Authentic Pralines in New Orleans, La., Bizarre Guitar & Drum in Phoenix, Ariz.
