I posted "freebee" here once before, but that was years ago, so I don't know if it's still available. But I'll do some looking this weekend and see if I can find the print out. If so, I'll post it again.

     As a past sports memorabilia shop owner, this is someone who found this in a drawer and because of the somewhat "famous" name condition matters very little. They should at least use lighting to increase visibility and a new top loader with a plastic sleeve. We all see items on eBay that are over the top over priced and sometimes they do sell.  But yes this card is $50 on a good day.
If it would make your life easier, I'm sure the concept artists would be happy to update you on their contributions to the monthly sets. All you'd have to do would be to type it in.

Is Tinee Giant some kind of grocery store chain?

It was more like a 7-11 convenience store.  I didn't realize that it was regional until I found it on Wikipedia.  It was part of Giant Open Air markets in Southeastern Virginia.

Giant Open Air Market was a Norfolk, Virginia-based supermarket chain. Its trademark stores were open 24 hours a day, and the entrance was framed with an arch which rose to over 30 feet, anchored in concrete.

The chain grew to include 26 full-line grocery stores and 43 "Tinee Giant" convenience stores. The stores were known for the vastness of the variety in the selections. The international line of groceries that they carried attracted national press at the time. Giant Open Air Markets would carry exotics like chocolate-covered ants from Japan, pickled eel, English teas, Greek and French cheeses and Russian caviar as well as Latin American foods. The sign over the front door read "Finest Foods of the World", reflecting their diverse selections.

While most of the ones near me have become Sentry Food Marts or have been taken over by gas stations like Exxon, the Tinee Giant convenience store chain still has several locations in Hampton Roads, VA.

Popular beverages in Japan include Calpis soda and Pocari Sweat. Let them have at it.

When I was in Japan, I was constantly calling Calpis (Calpico) "Cow-piss", which apparently they sometimes do to.  Tastes more like carbonated milk & orange julius.  And I DID find ONE example of a Japanese "Wacky" (sort of) in one of those impossible 'claw-arm' arcade machines.  I actually ended up giving it away, though, so I can't even remember now what the gag was.  I think it was a spoof on Asahi beer.  It was a fairly large plush-toy of a tan/yellowish beer can... that's all I remember.  And it only took me 3 tries to win it, too.  Anyone who's ever played a claw machine (since the 1980s anyway, when they purposely made them nearly 100% impossible to win because the claws don't actually stay clenched) knows that 3 tries is insanely hard... but it was a Japanese Wacky Package plushy!  I wasn't going to leave that damn arcade without that thing in my hands if I had to empty out all my Rotsa-Root into that machine!  (Note to Cancel-Culture:  I'm allowed to make that reference without being cancelled as Topps made the un-PC joke first and I'm just referencing it to refer to yen coins).  (Can't be too careful these days).

Shoot, you're right and I missed that!  I would have likely ordered more.
I heard some idiot told greg that I am gunning for him making it sound like out of the blue, I am soliciting feedback on how greg's libel of me impacts others when the fact is that I started gathering this feedback AFTER greg randomly decided to libel me on the main page of his website. 

Thank you to all who pointed that out to me as I don't visit his page much and thank you for those who continue to provide feedback to me on the fact he continues to attack me and others on his forum with no provocation(me, brad, nelson, nelson's wife, Dave Gross, Mark Newgarten to name a few....

It seems greg still can't resist telling his one sided "woe is me" wonder he created his own forum, he got kicked off two others and now he feels nobody can curtail his behavior.  Sad because he has a lot to offer but he just cant go thru life without attacking people.  Maybe some day he will complete that greg primer thread and explain why he is so driven by Jihads with so many people, he suggested something happened to him as a kid in that thread but never elaborated. 

Now that I think about it, I witnessed him verbally assault at least two collectors at two different shows and I stopped going to shows over a decade ago so who knows how many more have suffered his verbal abuse.
