Because Cy Young had never won a Cy Young award we can rule out that the baseball was signed by him. That narrows the list down to about 60 or more pitchers to find a value of a Cy Young award winner that signed the baseball.

To give you a more accurate value you must name the Cy Young award winner that signed the baseball.
