Identify this Garter Snake

Heyo, just picked up a few babies for a steal, unfortunately I am horrible at identifying Garter Snakes, I always assume they are either checkered or common. I'll try to get a better photo but they're wiggly little guys!

I'm not sure if this is an issue in garter snake circles (I'd bet it is) but in other taxa (rosy boas come to mind here) making IDs visually is a dangerous practice as not all hybrids/intergrades/crosses can be distinguished reliably.

Given that keepers (some of them, anyway) reasonably place a lot of value on reliable IDs, the most responsible course in cases where the breeder can't absolutely confirm the ID is to call it Thamnophis sp.
