If you’re a baseball fan with a quarter of a million dollars lyin’ around — you’re in luck … ‘cause an ultra-rare bat that Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente once used and signed is about to go on sale!!

TMZ Sports has learned … the Hillerich & Bradsby signature model U1 bat that Clemente swung during the 1971 season is hitting Heritage Auctions in February — and it’s awesome.

The 36-inch, 35.5-ounce relic has been photo-matched … and it’s also been autographed by Clemente himself.

The inscription — which Clemente made out to famed memorabilia collector Carey Diab — reads, “To my friend Carey, Best Wishes Always, Roberto Clemente.” It also has the No. 21 written on the knob.

Experts at Heritage Auctions expect it to go for $250K when it ultimately sells … explaining, “It is one of a tiny handful of known photo-matched Clemente gamers.”

Clemente was the first Caribbean and Latin-American MLB player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame after playing 18 seasons in the pros. In his career, he logged 3,000 hits and 240 home runs.

He also won two World Series with the Pittsburgh Pirates and became a 15-time All-Star, a four-time NL batting champ, and an NL MVP. Clemente also won 12 Gold Gloves.

Tragically, Clemente was killed in a plane crash that was en route to deliver emergency aid to Nicaragua earthquake victims in 1972. He was only 38.
