Last blitter record on Atari STE : 23 sprites of 32x32, 4 bitplanes. At the same 320x200 resolution and with help from the CPU, the Amiga blitter can display 24 sprites.
When pushing the display area to 320x256 (with overscan on STE),the STE should stay at 23, while the Amiga slows down to 22.
However in any case the Amiga can also add two 32x32 hardware sprites.
This was achieved by optimizing the blitter calls and masking on STE.
If the blitter was made available in 1987 for every STF, it would have been litteraly a game changer for the ST. A lot of games would have been optimized for the blitter with a fallback routine for older machines.
