Baseballs that have a theme as opposed to randomly signed signatures will appeal to more collectors, and will be worth more. HOF fame baseballs are a good theme but I cannot help you with a value without knowing the names. Find similar baseballs that have sold at auction and you should have an idea of the value. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Fore more information on signed baseballs visit the link below. "How Much Is My Autographed baseball?"
To properly value a baseball there are many variables i.e. when were the signatures obtained, the condition of the ball, who signed the sweet spot, the age of the ball etc. So to get a proper valuation of the item I would find an auction house or collector in your area to inspect the ball.
215 former major league players are available in the baseball hall of fame.
I take it by "Hall of Fame 1936 Babe Ruth Baseball" you mean a Baseball signed by Babe Ruth when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1936, or a "Hall of Fame Babe Ruth Baseball" issued recently as a collectible to commemorate Babe Ruth's Hall of Fame induction. Big Difference.If the baseball is a commemorate Babe Ruth's Hall of Fame baseball celebrating his induction into the Hall of Fame it would only be worth about $5.-$15. More of a novelty than a collectible. If the baseball is signed, and dated "1936" by Babe Ruth it will have higher value than a baseball signed by the Babe without the added inscription. Any inscription in reference to the Hall of Fame will add further value.One of the most prized signatures in the hobby a Babe Ruth single signed baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000. Value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature.A baseball in poor condition with a weak signature could sell in the $4,000. price range or less, and a minty baseball with a strong signature could sell in the $15,000 price range or more. The strength of the authenticity that accompanies the signature will hold the key to getting full value.
Not for being in the Hall of Fame.
A Kirby Puckett single signed baseball is worth about $150.-$250.Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Add for inscriptions. The baseball would not have a higher value because it was signed on the day he was inducted into the Hall of Fame unless he inscribed it on the baseball such as "HOF 2001" In a recent auction (Feb 2008) a Kirby Puckett single signed baseball sold at a high of $239.00
Yes, the pension is administed by the Players Association and NOT by Major League Baseball. The real issue is that they cannot get into the Hall of Fame which increases the value of signings they do after they retire.

The combo of those players together is not a common duo but becuase it is two Hall of Fame pitchers is certainly has value ranging around the $100 mark. A Rich Gossage single signed baseball is worth approximately $75 if it is on a Rawlings Official Major League baseball and is signed on the "sweet spot". A Bob Lemon single signed ball is worth approximately $84. These values assume that they are all authenticator by a reputable company.

If not the signatures could have also been signed at an All -Star game, at the a Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, or just random players at the ballpark.

Multi-signed baseballs will bring a higher value with a theme. For example: Team signed baseballs, HOF baseballs, 500 Home Run Club, 3000 hits, 300 wins etc.. Multi signed baseballswith random ballplayers of different teams or popularity will bring the lowest price.Depending on the signatures. In most cases a single signed baseball of a "Noted Player" will be worth more than a multi signed baseball that features the same "Noted player".Using Mickey Mantle as an example of a "Noted Player" vs. an actual Multi signed baseball that sold at auction, and included Mickey Mantle's signature on it.In two separate auctions a baseball with three Hall of fame players, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, and Duke Snider Multi-Signed Baseball (NY center Fielders) very desired Willie Mickey and the Duke baseball sold for only $334. and $448. For the most part less than a Mickey Mantle single signed baseball which has a value of about $400.-$800.Value is based on the price collectors pay for an Item. There are more collectors of Mickey Mantle memorabilia, and his signature is more sought after than the other two HOF'ers on this baseball. You have to treat this as two separate items. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball, and a Mickey Mantle Multi signed baseball. There are less collectors of Hall of Fame multi signed signatures, than collectors of a Mickey Mantle signature.

I don't know the exact number but there are at least 12 St. Louis Cardinals in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The value of your baseball will rely on which 5 signed it.

IT depends who are the three who signed the ball. The condition of the ball & signatures. Can the ball & signatures be authenticated and certified? Were all the signatures gotten at the same time? Is there a photograph showing you getting the autographs?
The Willie Mays signed Hall of Fame postcard would fall in to the signed baseball card price range. A Willie Mays autographed baseball card is worth between $50.-$100. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Collectible items could add value to the price of a signature but not always. As in the case of a baseball card, generally collectors of baseball cards would rather have a baseball card without the signature. The signature would be considered as a flaw in the condition of the card and will lower the value. An autograph collector will not always pay extra for the "collectible" baseball card. The autograph collectors main concern is displaying the signature. This is why it is not a good idea to have an expensive baseball card signed. You could devalue the price of the card, and get less for it. The Hall of fame Postcard which has a lower value to start with becomes an Item to display the signature. The bulk of the value relies on the value of the Willie Mays signature, and how well the postcard displays the signature.
