Is it or isn't it? (Update: Whale landed! 2006 Upper Deck Special F/X blue)

A lot on eBay popped up a few days ago, listed as a "Lot of 22 Jonny Gomes Baseball Cards - Rookies & Jersey Relic." $15 with shipping; I purchased it almost immediately.

The photo of the lot is below. Anyone see what I saw? (No, I don't mean Yan Gomes posing as Jonny Gomes.) And—if so—do you think it is, or not? I'm not sure, but was willing to risk $15 on the chance. The tracking number says it's been delivered, so I'll find out later today.

Blue fx? Tough one if it is

That's what I'm hoping! Have been looking for it for 16 years. I'm pretty sure it has to be from Special F/X; the UD is logo is different on the regular Upper Deck issue. Then, it looks too shiny to be the base, and while it looks a bit more purple than blue, I can't make out a serial number.

Alternatively, I could just be seeing things...

It's the blue! Holy cow. Been looking for this for 16 years, and have never even heard of someone with it, let alone seen it. It's also the first non-1/1 off my list in maybe five years. And what a way to find it!

That's awesome man. Glad you finally found it.

Now can you find me a lot with a 1999 and 2000 Jeff Frye Boston Red Sox Team Photocard or a 1998 Stadium Club First Day Issue? Thanks.

Thanks, guys! Still can hardly believe it. To be fair, of the remaining cards I'm missing (listed below), this is one of the few that I thought I had a realistic shot at. But almost every non-1/1 would be easier to find than what's left. In this case, the common saying of rare but inconspicuous cards—that they're likely sitting unrecognized in someone's shoebox—truly seems to have been the case. The guy who sold it to me said that he has no idea where he got it, and that he buys tons of collections.

@WizardofOz1982, I'll see what I can do. At 16 years per card, it'll take only until 2070. @tramers, he has four DAV cards: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008. Are you thinking of one of those?
