Verdict: There was a time, back in the early to mid-90s, that the Toronto Blue Jays ruled the world of Major League Baseball. The team even won back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. Those days are long gone, but if you’re a Blue Jays fan, you can still show your pride in your team with the Toronto Blue Jays MLB Extra Bases Credit Card. And while you’re at it, you can earn rewards points — good for Major League Baseball merchandise and tickets — with every purchase that you make with your card.

Overview: This card is one of 30 issued by Major League Baseball and Bank of America, one for each of baseball team in the majors. The Blue Jays card comes complete with Toronto’s logo on its front.

How This Card Works: You’ll receive rewards points with every purchase that you make with this card. Once you earn enough of these points, you can redeem them for Major League Baseball or Toronto Blue Jays merchandise, everything from autographed baseballs and authentic game jerseys to tickets to games and invitations to throw out the first pitch at upcoming Blue Jays games.

Travel and Shopping Benefits: You’ll earn one rewards point for every dollar that you charge with your Toronto Blue Jays MLB Extra Bases card. There is some criticism of these cards for this rewards program; unlike higher-end rewards programs, you won’t have the opportunity to double or triple your rewards points. In addition to redeeming your points for baseball-related merchandise and experiences, you can also turn your points into travel rewards and other merchandise.

Fees: The interest rate attached to this card depends on your credit score. If its high, you can earn a purchase interest rate as low as 12.99 percent. If your score is low, your purchase interest rate can be as high as 20.99 percent. The card also comes with an introductory interest rate of 0 percent on all new purchases for the first 12 months after you open your account. There is no annual fee associated with this card. Cash advances cost $10 or 4 percent of the advance amount, whichever is lower. Returned-payment fees cost up to $25, while late-payment fees can run as high as $35.

Pros:

  • No annual fee.
  • Low purchase interest rate depending on credit score.
  • Easy to understand rewards program.

Cons:

  • Purchase interest rate can be high if credit scores are low.
  • Rewards program is rather simplistic.
