Your skills will soon become honed. If working in a group 'rattles' you, worry not - that will subside & concentration soon become easier. The cards will not always be "limited editions".
PART 3 requires some diplomacy which isn't exactly covered in this book, but you'll catch on quickly. In collecting A.T.Cs you will want to maneuver toward acquiring the most colorful & diverse collection of cards possible. ( Be diplomatic! ) Having an adequate notebook in which to display your cards to potential 'traders' is desirable. (You could use a baseball trading card album for starters).
