Default HELP please! Opinions on what to do with a damaged SUPERFRACTOR pull??

Okay, so here's the situation. I pulled a 1/1 Superfractor Patch of Reuben Randle from this years Bowman Sterling football. Beautiful card, nice patch, but it has a dinged top corner that is quite noticeable. Here are my questions.

1. Can this card be remade if sent back in?
2. Is it worth sending in and getting replacement product/cards at the value of the card?
3. What would Topps try to value the card at, seeing as it's a 1/1 and there is no book value on it?
4. Would it be easier to move or sell it to a Giants collector as is, with the dinged corner, seeing as how it's a superfractor that may not even be remade if sent in?

Thanks in advance for all the advice and help....

If it were me I would just send it to mmbtvs...but then I'm not a money grubbing whore like so many.

But if I were you I would probably move as is because I'm not sure you would be happy with a replacement.

I don't think I woiuld gamble on a replacement. Since its a 1/1 I don't think a dinged corner will hurt its value much.

I wouldn't even take a chance with a superfractor... the odds at getting something better than that are slim imho...

I've heard of panini remaking 1/1s because of damage and being pretty good about it. Not sure about Topps though. Call them!

Topps won't do crap for you. I would be truthful with your listing and move it.

Yeah I agree, sell it because topps may give you something, but not as much as your could just selling it.

sell it as is. it's a 1/1 truly, if someone really wants it for their collection, they won't care as much that it's damaged.

seriously, is it just dinged, or is it hammered, I hate when people think a ding on a card means its in horrible condition and try sending it back........if its nrmt, state it as such and move on, be happy it isn't really damaged!!
