    1887 N171 Old Judge Henry Irving SGC 60 EX 5. Sir Henry Irving was the "Orson Wells" of his era. The English actor also served as manager of the Lyceum Theatre, set supervisor, director, casting director, who also did set design and lighting. He was the first actor to be awarded a knighthood. His success on stage did not carry over to the role of "husband" and "father" who had illegitimate children despite the haughty norms of the Victorian era was well accepted by society. Irving was a Freemason and founder member and first Treasurer of London's Savage Club and a lifelong friend of Bram Stoker and it is believed that Irving inspired Stoker for his greatest work - "Dracula." Graded SGC 60 EX 5, this is the lone example graded to date by SGC. The card shows corner wear and excellent photo quality.
