Smile Need some advice

Just returned from the local flea mkt with an old fiberglass rod. It's a Horrocks and Ibbotson 9' in really good condition. Wraps and guides are great , reel seat clean but whoever had it stained the entire cork brown . The cork is in good shape but I want to get the stain off . This is where I need advice from you guys that rebuild. Do I sand it and if so what grade of paper? Do I use a stripper to take the stain off? Or am I better off just redoing the cork? I paid $4 for it so I don't mind spending a few bucks . Just something I like about this stick. Thanks for any help you can offer.
