It wasn't planned this way by the two clubs, but for 2004, the Marlins and the Mets exchanged closers, with Braden Looper taking over the top spot in the New York bullpen, and Armando Benitez settling in for Florida—each of the two pitchers signing as free agents. Braden's 1998 Upper Deck card is shown here, and there are scans of more cards shown below.
