An autograph that is not authenticated by a creditable company could sell at half the price or less than one that is. Two of the top, and most trusted authenticators are PSA/DNA, and James Spence Authentic (JSA). Collectors will pay more for signatures authenticated by either one.
It may sound odd but in some cases PSA/DNA, and JSA authenticated signatures may sell higher than a Letter of authenticity from an unknown or less trusted authenticator that witnessed the signing even though PSA/DNA, and JSA did not. It's just a matter of collectors trust, and collectors will pay more for it.
Check the respective websites Show Schedule to see if they will be in the area that you live. They also do business through the mail. If you did not get the signatures signed yourself, before spending money on having the autograph authenticated do your homework. Find signatures on line that have been properly authenticated, and compare them to yours. If you feel comfortable that they can be authentic then proceed.

No CoatingYes especially with newer baseballs. It will hurt the value of the signature. Years ago it was a common practice to shellac the baseball to protect the signatures. This practice stopped when it was realized that the balls would turn yellow, crack, and peal off. With some of the earliest signed baseballs, the value is not hurt as much as with newer balls because the autographs are more rare, and it was common.
It depends on who it's autographed by.
Most if not all autographed baseballs sold on amazon are through private dealers, selling on Amazon. Regardless where you buy an autograph it should be accompanied by the proper authentication. Authenticators that use matching holograms like PSA/DNA, Stiener Sports or Mounted Memories are most trusted among collectors. Even if you buy an authentic autograph that is not properly authenticated you will have a hard time selling it without it or get below market value.
Who was the stick used by? Who has autographed it? These things will affect the value.
The value of your 1995 Rawlings autographed baseball will depend on who signed the baseball. A value can not be determined without the names. Value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. If the signatures are not properly authenticated the baseball could sell at half the market value or less. Prices of team signed baseballs will vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable.
