Easter Packs: 2012 Series 1, Opening Day and Heritage

Easter for a 17-year-old usually consists of getting a crapload of candy, plus some packs. While the mounds of Starburst Jellybeans will last for a while in my house, I'm glad the packs will give me a short-term high. I got 2 packs of series 1, a fat pack of Opening day, and 3 rack packs of Heritage, which Topps really perfected this year.
