Default 1939 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio

I was given this card as a gift recently for being a groomsmen in my friends wedding. He said that he picked it up at a show recently and thought it would be perfect for me. While I am very grateful for the gesture, I have doubts towards it's authenticity. The stock feels right, but the creases along the corners concern me. Has anyone seen anything like this and could offer some insight? Please disregard the back right corner, the card is not mis-cut, I just cut some of it off on the scanner.

Much of this is authentic.

The corners appear reatt'd/glued and obviously the top corner is a donor piece.

Would that most likely grade an authentic "A"? I was thinking about sending it in for grading. Any idea how glue/donor pieces effect value?

Thanks guys!

Looks like discoloration from being in those little photo album tabs to me.
