Default OMG I'm collecting modern: my modern Houston Astros pickup thread

I've been an Astros fan from birth. Then by choice. (cause screw the Rangers, am I right?) This is my first attempt at collecting modern and I must admit that I can't believe all the variations, "errors", parallels, autos, relics, Santa hats!?!

I tried to just limit it to Topps products. For the team collection I've stayed on track. However, I decided to PC Correa and Altuve. Wow. Sooo many cards. 1/1's don't really count in my universe, so I don't even keep an eye out for them. If they happen to come my way for the right price? That's a different story.

Slowly picking up Correa autos that I like/can afford. I even buy the ugly ones if they aren't that expensive.

Bowman seems to have enough variations to choke an elephant. I don't expect to get anywhere near completion.

I'm still not sure if I want to chase Correa minor league cards. Time will tell.

Was able to pick up two Jose Altuve all star Letters along with some numbered and non numbered Real Ones autos. I pulled one of the non numbered myself.
