Yes, they do exist. They tend to be rarish, though, usually only on TT / Tri bikes.

There are always a fair amount more Shimano ones around as they also get used on tourers.

Been looking on eBay for the last month and have only found 8 or 10 speed. I'm back in the stone age with friction mode...

You also need to be careful as there are two versions of 9 speed: pre- and post-2001.
Campag changed the leverage of the rear mechs in 2001 and they are incompatible.

Pre-2001 rear mechs are getting harder to find these days, especially in long cage versions.
