Verdict: You can recite Greg Maddux’s won-loss records for every year he pitched. You still remember the game when slugger Bob Horner cranked out four homeruns. Yes, you’re a true fan of the Atlanta Braves. Fortunately for you, Major League Baseball and Bank of America offer a credit card that allows you to show this allegiance, the Atlanta Braves MLB Extra Bases Credit Card, a rewards card that comes with no annual fee.

Overview: This card comes with the Atlanta Braves’ logo on its front. Whenever you use it to pay for anything, you’ll be showcasing your passion for Braves’ baseball.

How This Card Works: You’ll earn rewards points with every purchase that you make with this card. You can then redeem these points for Braves and Major League Baseball merchandise, memorabilia and experiences. The only downside to the card? The rewards program is a rather vanilla one.

Travel and Shopping Benefits: The rewards program that comes with the Atlanta Braves credit card is a basic one, perhaps too basic: You’ll earn one rewards point for every purchase that you make with it. That’s it; there are no opportunities to double or triple your rewards points depending on the type of purchases that you make. However, redeeming these points is especially satisfying for Braves fans. You can turn your points into team magazines, autographed baseballs, authentic Braves jerseys and even the opportunity to attend special invitation-only Braves functions.

Fees: For the first 12 months after you activate your Atlanta Braves MLB Extra Bases Credit Card, your purchase interest rate will be 0 percent. After this year passes, your rate will jump to anywhere from 12.99 percent to 20.99 percent depending on your creditworthiness. If your credit score is low, this isn’t a good card on which to carry a balance from month to month. There is no annual fee with this card, while cash advances cost $10 or 4 percent of the advance amount, whichever is higher. Late-payment fees can run as high as $35, while returned-payment fees can hit $25.

Pros:

  • Can redeem rewards points for wide variety of Atlanta Braves merchandise.
  • Earn rewards points with every purchase.
  • No annual fee.

Cons:

  • Rewards program is too basic.
  • Purchase interest rate can rise above 20 percent depending on credit score.
