Often lost in the shadow of the The Ball Player’s iconic juxtaposition is this same-era poster celebrating the specific outlets of Bo’s dual dynamism: He’s a Raider, he’s a Royal. No. 34. No. 16. Black. Blue.

Cruisin' for a bruisin'?

Assuming this was taken in the same studio where the Bo Knows commercial was filmed, and that the hockey stick and Bo Diddley’s red axe were just accidentally left in the shot.
