I don't understand genetics at all.
But I mated a long haired white broken with grey spots with a viable yellow uhh brindle.
I do believe.
What should the babies look like?

It's really very difficult to determine what babies you would get without information on what other varieties are in each mouse's background. It would also be a good idea to tell what varieties the parents would be. It sounds like you mean the buck is black/blue broken/variegated long haired/angora, and the doe is a recessive yellow brindle (those are common) or an RY with general "sooty"ness to her. Perhaps she is a sable... if you are unsure of their coloring, then it is darn near impossible to guess. ;)

The thing with genetics is family history is key in figuring things out. If you get your mice from a pet shop ,like I ended up doing, the best way to find out what is in there backround is through test breeding. Your doe being a resesive yellow brindle tells you that her parents both had the yellow brindle gene unfortunatly you don't know if they only had that gene or if they had a domonat gene with it. Hope I havn't confused you.
