I need another $1370 to max my Roth this year. Can I move stocks from a standard taxable e-trade account into my Roth (at USAA, not e-trade)?

If I can do that, how much can I move in? What the stocks are worth the day I move them or would it be how much I paid for them?

i.e. I have 100 shares of XYZ that are worth $13.70 ea right now but I paid $17.125 ea for them. Could I move 100 shares to my Roth because that would be moving $1370 worth of stock today or could I only move 80 shares because I paid $1370 for 80 shares earlier in the year?
