i think that list starts in 1991 or around there.  basically since the inception of the Nu-Line x-caliber.  anything before that is automatically allowed, just don't quote me on that. (given normal rules comliance ie.  hardness, static weights...)

It's not comprehensive, but you could check out the PBA's Approved Equipment List.  Smaller manufacturers like Legends and Visionary aren't listed, nor are manufacturers that are out of business or have moved overseas like Nu-line and Revolution.  But for companies that are currently registered, their list is pretty extensive.

It's not sorted by date, nor can you query by date, but if there's a certain manufacturer or ball you're interested in, you should be able to find what you're looking for.
