Phun Cards - 2007 vs Now - Charlie's Not So "Young" Sluggers

At this moment this card would really be filed under Not so Phun Cards. 

2007 Topps Heritage #368 Charlie's Young Sluggers

After he Phils 1-0 Loss to the Giants late Wednesday Night they found thenselves in LAST PLACE.  It has been 5 years since the Phils had a stranglehold on the bottom spot in the NL East.  Much of the poor start is due to their rather punchless offense. 

This brings us to the 2007 Heritage Card above, which was released, yes 5 years ago.  Featured on the card are the Phillies two YOUNG sluggers.  Well, half a decade passes quickly in a baseball career - here in 2012 Ryan Howard and Chase Utley are no longer young.  They are both on the DL and nobody seems to know when they will return....
