NGC Replaces "First Strike" Designation with "Early Releases" Designation
I'd like to think that my article on the First Strike madness had something to do with NGC's decision to stop using the First Strike designation (NGC Press Release)and switch it to Early Releases instead, but I'm sure it has more to do with the recent class action lawsuits. But who knows, maybe in some small way the article played a part. Anyway, the good news is that the First Strike designation is hopefully on its way to being a thing of the past. If only PCGS and ANACS would follow suit.
