I had the same dilemma with a lost Maxxum 9 "eyepiece cup." The Minolta OEM part number is EC-9. If you can find one, grab it.

It was suggested on this forum that the eyepiece cup for the Sony DSLR-a900 can be substituted. I was able to order a new one from Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, etc., which handles parts distribution for Sony now. Although not a perfect substitute, and obviously not OEM, I can confirm that it works just fine on my Maxxum 9. Not cheap (approx. $43.00 US, including tax and shipping) but what are you going to do?

Encompass does not have the most intuitive website, so here is the Sony Part No. and description given by Encompass:   X-2319-492-1 AC Eye Hood Assembly.

I was lucky [or diligent enough] to find a Minolta 9 [do we use the a9 or alpha 9 title] that was advertised as..

Original rubber grip professionally replaced with a polymer silicone replacement that does not perish or deteriorate.

The camera is perfect, an absolute bargain, so much so that this "casual" purchase has now been added to with a VC-9 battery grip, 5400HS flash and 4 AF lenses... I said I would not go down this route again ;-) after selling one of the largest Minolta vintage collections in the UK, to a retired Chemist in the French Alps, who now has a Minolta "museum".

As soon as all the other bits arrive< i intend showing images on my flickr account. minolta4me-Kevin nor kevin_sony_mirrorless it's the future.
