Ancient Chinese ball game called Ts'u Chu (Cuju)

I was wondering if anyone has come across cigarette cards or trade cards featuring this ball game?

Sorry but it doesn't ring a bell.  What sort of ball game is it?  Presumably something like football rather than tennis.

Apparently it's a little like football. FIFA claim it's the forerunner of the modern game though there's no direct link between the two. By the 11th Century there were professional players in China and the game was played by all the social classes in China.

I know larger numbers of Chinese cigarette cards were produced and wondered if this sport had ever been featured.
