Visit a show, talk to as many breeders as you can, watch the judging and see which variety grabs you. Then find out more about it. You'll also need somewhere to house the mice, some tanks and supplies and some Maxeys to show in.
Selfs are more consistent in that you get a higher proportion of each litter that you can show, but competition can also be fierce. Marked varieties aren't what I'd suggest for a beginner as you need to breed and cull hundreds of mice to get something showable a lot of the time. Tans could be a good section to consider for a beginner as well. It all depends on what you like - you will have to look at these mice every day for years!
