Verdict: Do you still remember where you were when Luis Gonzalez hit that deep fly ball in 2001 off Yankees star reliever Mariano Rivera to bring home Jay Bell to score the winning run of game 7 of the World Series? Then you’re probably a die-hard fan of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the underdog team that defeated the mighty Bronx Bombers that year four games to three in the World Series. You’re also a prime candidate for the Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Extra Bases Credit Card, a rewards card issued by Bank of America.

Overview: The Arizona Diamondbacks credit card allows you to both earn points with every purchase that you make and to support your favorite baseball team. The card comes with the Diamondbacks’ logo embossed on its front, making it clear with every purchase who you root for come every April.

How This Card Works: At its heart, this is a fairly standard rewards card. In fact, the rewards program on its face isn’t anything spectacular; there are no opportunities to earn more rewards points depending on the purchases that you make. However, you can redeem your points for baseball, and Diamondbacks-centered, merchandise and experiences.

Travel and Shopping Benefits: You’ll earn one rewards point for every dollar that you charge with this card. You can then redeem these points for a wide variety of baseball-centered rewards, everything from team jerseys to autographed baseballs to the opportunity to throw out the first pitch at a Diamondbacks home game.

Fees: This card comes with a purchase interest rate that varies depending on your credit scores, running anywhere from 12.99 percent to 20.99 percent. For the first 12 months after you activate your account, though, you’ll be rewarded with an introductory purchase interest rate of 0 percent. The card comes with no annual fee. Other fees are standard: Cash advances cost either $10 or 4 percent of the advance amount, whichever is higher. Late-payment fees can run as high as $35, while returned-payment penalties can hit $25.

Pros:

  • Card comes with Diamondbacks log on its front.
  • Rewards program allows you to earn points with every purchase.
  • No annual fee.

Cons:

  • If your credit is high, your purchase interest rate can soar.
  • Rewards program comes with little flexibility.
