Default Damaged Card Question

I just pulled an 07 JaMarcus Russell National Treasures Patch Auto RC /99. The problem is all 4 corners have visible dings on them. I am not normally one to gripe about condition of cards I pull since I know not everything is going to be Gem Mint 10 but to have all 4 corners visibly dinged when I pull the card is frustrating. To make it worse I doubt they can do much since it's a hard signed card and its not a card I really want to keep I want to sell it because I don't collect him. What would you guys do:

Contact Donruss and hope they can help me out or

Just deal with the dinged corners and make it known when I sell the card

Thanks in advance for the advice

Contacting them couldn't hurt. They should be able to do something about it. Either replace it with the same card w/different #'ing or replace it with something(s) of similar value.

If they can't/won't help you out, just make it known in your auction that there is damage.

Ok I submitted a ticket to Donruss about the card. Hopefully it can be replaced with the same card. I wouldn't complain about it if it was only 1 corner as only 1 corner is what I would consider really bad but I can see a ding on both front and back of all 4 corners and I think that really kills any value of the card.

Donruss Customer Service's new online system is pretty good. Hopefully they will have another Jamar to replace it. Is the Auto on card or a sticker...if it is a sticker they prob have a replacement jersey card and restamp it. On card then you might have to settle for something of equal value.

Yeah its on card because its the true rookie card. Thats why I am not sure about getting it replaced. I just dont think I should pull a card where if I shipped it to Beckett the corners would probly grade a 3 or 4 because of visible dings. If it was one corner I could live with it cause it happens sometimes but for all 4 to have dings even if minor the fact that they are visible to the naked eye significantly reduces what grade it would receive and therefor significantly reduces value.
