Major League baseballs can be dated by the name on the stamp of the league President. See Related Links below for a link to a list of official baseballs, and their estimated market value without boxes in excellent to near mint condition. Some time around 1876, Albert G. Spalding and his brother, J. Walter Spalding, obtained the right to produce the official National League Baseball, which they would continue to produce for the next 100 years.

The American League, formally the American League of Professional Baseball Clubs combined with the National league in 1901 to form Major League Baseball. Alfred James Reach, owner of The Reach sporting Goods company, sold his company to Spalding in 1889. Spalding continued to use the Reach label produced American League baseballs beginning in 1901.

NOTE: American League baseballs with the Reach Trademark had Red & Blue stitching, and the National League Spalding Trademark baseballs had Black & Red stitching up until about 1934/35 when in both league started using only red stitching.

Spalding along with the Reach label was producing Major league baseball for about 100 years until Rawlings took over around 1970, and Rawlings have been making major league baseballs ever since.

How much more is a autograph on a official mlb baseball than just a regular rawlings ball?

Major League Baseball more DesiredThe value of a Signature on a Major League ball could have a higher value than a signature on a "regular baseball" but the value will ultimately fall upon the quality of the signature, and the type of authenticity that accompanies it. A Major League baseball would be more desired for the signature resulting in a higher value. The condition of the ball would be a larger factor on value overall. Because the Major league baseball is more desired it doesn't always translate into a higher value. The signature, and how well it displays dictates the value.
