Order the 9E10 cell line from ATCC (or similar) and make it yourself? 
Certainly, the best anti-Myc antibody I had came from someone who had made
their own.  IIRC, you get much more antibody protein for the same money
from BAbCo (Berkeley Antibody Company) compared to Oncogene Science... 

No connection with any of the organisations listed.
