Trade Bait - Astros Edition

Hey everyone. So after posting yesterday and getting in a group draft break on my LCS FB Live page, I made a mega trade with a fellow watcher on the break. This has gotten my TRADE juices flowing. So, I've decided to do a series of posts to show off my available trade bait, especially since I'm stuck in the house for the foreseeable future thanks to Harvey.

So, I'm starting with my Astros trade bait. You may be asking yourself, "But this guy collects Astros, how does he have Astros trade bait?" Well, to explain my collecting philosophy a bit, I'm not a hoarder. I see no point in having multiple copies of the same card, unless there is something cool about said card. But most hits and autos, as long as I have one copy, I don't fight to "get them all". This isn't Pokemon. So, behold... the massive amount of duplicate Astros "hits" sitting in my inventory!
Alright, that first Biggio is /15. The Morgan /250, Altuve /99, Ryan /149. 
The first Biggio is /100, next /99. The Correa is /99 as well. Ensberg is out of an amazing /1325! Can you imagine signing your name that many times? 
The only numbered one here is Tony Mitchell - which is /6000. Which is why I think his MLB career never took off, injured from signing so many tiny cards.
UPDATE - 9/3/17 - Added Biggio and Biggio/Gaffney

Alright, this is the first in a series as I go through each team. As I get to teams with minimal trade bait, I may combine them. For instance, I think I only have (1) Cardinals card so I'll probably combine them with the Cubs, just to piss off two fan bases at once!

I am pretty sure you all know what I'm looking for: Astros, Nolan Ryan, Pieces of the Past, NASA, and anything else you think may fit in my PC. Oh yea, will also trade for Hollywood relics for the Hotwit's collection.
