tap it on the ground and see if it makes a hollow unusual sound and then if you cant tell do the same with other racquets and if possible the same one

If you put one end up on a curb and the other on the street, then run over the middle of it, the crack will be more obvious.

Best bet, is to take it to a stringer and ask them. I doubt you will feel safe about it without a second opinion up close.
If you still in doubt, just sell it. lol
