The autographs were obtained at Hull University on the 11th February 1972, as part of Wings UK Tour of unannounced concerts at Universities around the the UK, the other two band members Denny Seiwell and Henry McCullough were not obtained by the original vendor as she did not reckonise them as 'band members'.

The autographs are very clear and look great mounted with the photos, the mount is wrapped in a cellephane wrap for protection, which can be removed, hence the slighty poor quality of the images.
Quotes from Wikipedia
McCartney had formed Wings for the purpose of having a band to go on the road with, and he wasted no time in doing just that. During the waning years of The Beatles, notably during the Get Back sessions, he had suggested they return to live performances by showing up unannounced at pubs and playing for the patrons, but the idea was never seriously considered by the other Beatles. From 2 to 7 February 1972, Wings held rehearsals for the tour at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA). The rehearsals were filmed by Tyncho Films, and titled by McCartney as The ICA Rehearsal, and features footage of: "The Mess", "Wild Life", "Bip Bop", "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "Maybelline", "Seaside Woman", "My Love", "Give Ireland Back to the Irish" and "Lucille".
McCartney took the band on an impromptu tour of the United Kingdom's universities, showing up unannounced and performing for whoever happened to be on campus. The band's intended first stop on the tour, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, had no suitable venue, so the band moved on to the more receptive Nottingham. Admission to the first show which was held at 12 noon in the Portland Building Ballroom was GBP 0.40, proceeds being split up equally among the band members. At Hull, the word circulated fast, and a full hall of about 800 welcomed Wings at 50p per head.

The overall size of the sleeve is 300mm x 300mm, and could be trimmed to about 80mm x 60mm for mounting with a good period photo of George.
