They clearly weren't too compact, as he could sign them prior to being sewn together. The curvature of a baseball was likely too extreme for his limited motor movements, whereas a bat would have provided him a larger, longer, less rounded surface.

Exactly. Even though bats were easier to sign they are much rarer to find with Campanella's post-accident autograph than baseballs. The main reason was the price he charged for bats , as with most players, was much more than for baseballs.
