Burt Hooton was a very good pitcher for the Dodgers. He was known for his mastery of a knuckle-curve that allowed him to win 112 games as a Dodger in 10 season. Overall, Hooton started 265 games in Blue, completing 65 of them, while recording a 3.14 ERA, an ERA+ of 113, and a WAR of 24.3. Burt Hooton will also be remembered for a great nickname- "Happy". I guess with the kind of numbers described above, you've got to be happy camper.
Featured here are a handful of Burt "Happy" Hooton autographed Baseball cards in my collection. Above and directly below is a 2006 Fleer Greats of the Game Nickname Greats autographed card of Hooton.
Below are a couple of 2005 Upper Deck Past Time Pennants autographed cards of Burt Hooton. As you can see, there are two different versions shown below. The card on the left is a silver variation, and on the right is a bronze variation. From my understanding, a gold variation also exist.
Below is what the reverse of the cards look like.
