What morph?

Hey! I’m new to the forum and I breed leopard geckos to sell on Craigslist. I don’t breed specific morphs I just have great looking random morphs that I breed for fun. So I bred two of my tangerine (phenotype, idk what the genotype or specific morph is) and so far two babies have hatched. One looks like a normal baby tangerine, but the other one looks way different. It has super dark eyes, no bands on the torso and a grayish body. Here are some pics of the parents, the first normal baby, and then the pic of the strange one. Do you know if it’s albino, or eclipse, or whatever main morph it looks like? Thanks, just wondering so I know what it will look like as an adult.64E0F9B7-232F-496C-862C-99957264E662.jpeg291C113C-619C-4237-A3CD-A1A99FBF60CC.jpeg75A8FC11-5F1D-46C1-A2A2-CBA9081C0E82.jpeg393FDC57-6F41-4681-AAC5-45C5816D86EB.jpeg

Welcome to the forums! I'm not a morph expert so I won't even hazard a guess! They're all beautiful though!

The solid eyes make it an eclipse, which means that each of the parents has a gene for eclipse. It's a patternless stripe, meaning that it has stripe genes (as you can see from the tail) and it hatched essentially as a super hypo. The white patch on the head is part of the eclipse trait. It may get yellower as it matures and the black stripes on the tail may break up into spots. Some of the patternless ones get more spots as adults. I've hatched a number like that and I like that look.

Wow thanks a ton! Is it worth any more or is it more rare?

It's less common than a normal wild type. It's really a question at this point as to what anyone will pay for a leopard gecko. When I was breeding, I sold nearly all my geckos for $25-45, with a few (like a super snow eclipse going for $50-90). This would be more of a $45 one for me.
