These rewards consist of two Dark Matter Hero Cards as illustrated above, one being Manute Bol and the other, rookie Chet Holmgren.

To secure the Hero Cards for each set, fans can either acquire them from random Season 6 packs they unlock, purchase packs in the Pack Market that contain them, or visit the Auction Market where they can buy them using MyTEAM Coin.

With Season 6 coming to a close in less than two weeks, NBA 2K23 MyTEAM released its final set of Hero Cards needed for the Friday collection last week, along with its corresponding Manute Bol Dark Matter reward.
