What is the value of a 1992 World Series game-used ball autographed by all the Blue Jays?

If it can be documented as a ball actually used in the 1992 World Series and is autographed by the entire team (or at least 20 of the most important players) the value probably is in the $1000 to $2000 range depending mostly on condition. A 1992 Toronto Blue Jays Team signed baseball with the Key signatures: Carter, Alomar, Winfield, Morris is worth about $250.-$375. Price is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable. There haven't been a whole lot of Blue Jays Team signed baseballs up for auction lately. The price stated above might be a little out dated but should be close. I will up date the price as soon as I find any up for auction. As far as a "game used" World Series baseballbecause this cannot be proven it might not effect the price unless the condition of the baseball is bad. If the buyer believes it to be a Game used baseball it might add some value but not as much as if it came with a MLB authentication. Word of mouth will not bring a high price.
