Default Opinions on the condition of the Topps Heritage black border

I started collecting the 2012 minor black borders because well the cards are beautiful. However the one Ive been wanting just came in the mail. All the corners ive come across in this set arent perfect... but this seems a bit sketchy to me. I can get my 18 bucks back, but I scooped this Taveras for half book value and its #1 of 96. Should I keep it or send it back? Heres the pix

A) Half book value doesn't necessarily mean you got a good deal, just that you got it for half book value
B) It being numbered 1/XX doesn't make that card any more valuable than a 2/XX
C) If you're not looking to flip the card, I say keep it. Granted, that's assuming the auction didn't describe the card as Mint

I have found that these black borders aren't always in the best shape. I opened a case of this stuff and none of them were perfect.

Not really looking to make money, but just have the highest value collection I can get.
