I wish SGC would have used this label and system but it will never happen. I love these flips and holder combo the best. I have seen a few of these over the years. By the looks of it they must have opened their doors in January of 90 and actually put the date on the label. First one I have seen with the date on it.
1961 Aaron All Star


That Aaron is pre-SGC. That is SBC, which was ran by Merkle. Certified Collectors Group - for SGC (when they had their own card, comic, coin collectors empire)hired Merkle to jump start the card grading business, but they are two different companies. CCG then sold off the card grading portion to Dave Forman, but kept the rest of their grading empire - paper money, coins, comics.

Here are the very first flips from SGC. These only lasted probably 2 maybe 3 months?

I think Merkle lasted for about 9 months and it was changed following his exit.

The ones with the "SG" and long bar codes only lasted maybe 3 months? The ones with the "SG" and short bar codes where the ones that changed when Merkle exited.
