Timing was bad however, because that is exactly when Topps announced they would release new wackys. Until that point Topps did not care what the collectors did. Now suddenly they cared very much. That added an additional hurdle to printing the lost wackys. After much discussion with Topps, collectors got the nod to print a very limited very underground run of the Lost Wackys series - intended for the die-hard collectors to trade amongst themselves. So in 2004 at long last Lost Wackys finally saw the light of day. A total of 120 sets were printed.
