Am I allowed to use baseball teams, etc. old logos to put onto things to sell commercially on a small-scale?

MLB's intellectual property lawyers are pretty thorough. They maintain trademark protection upon all team and league logos, present AND PAST. Wanna sell something using marks distinctive to the Brooklyn Dodgers? Just ante up some rights fees or royalty payments and you probably can.
Probably a lot easier to make up your own marks, taking care not to make them too similar.

Logos of baseball teams and other logos are under trademark protection. If you try to copy their logos without permission you can be sued for infringement. You can contact the owner of the logo or trademark you want to use and ask for permission in using their mark or to make thing easy make your own mark not similar to their mark.

Depends what country you are in, in the UK we have a '30 year rule' whereby you can use anything (including government secrets) for anything after 30 years

No, but depending on how small your scale is, you might not get bothered.
