OK...Here's a visual question for you baseball fans out there.

  The picture:

  The two questions:
   1) Who signed this ball?
   2) What is it worth (if anything)?

   1) It is definitely authentic.
   2) I am 99% sure that it is from the pros (major league).
   3) It was given to me by an uncle in approximately 1987.  I believe
it to be from the 86 or 87 season.
   4) He also gave me a ball signed by all of the 1986 Houston Astros
(yes, including Nolan Ryan).  As far as I can tell, this signature
does not match any of those, though, so I don't know if that is
helpful information.  For extra credit, what is the approximate value
of this 1986 Houston Astros ball?

  Thanks for your time!!!

Here are a couple of sites that also might help:

At least you can get some idea about prices.
I didn't check, but you probably can also ask about your balls on the sites.

I was wondering if the ball pictured was one caught by a fan and later
signed by the homerun batter.

Hmmm, World Series ball signed by 26 players, $1799.  I wonder how
many there are and how long the signing session lasted.

I'm not sure but i think that ball says "Ampicillin 500mg".
