Here is the link to ebay seller for such an adapter. I have seen it on dyxum forum:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/No-Glass-Minolta-MD-MC-Lens-to-SONY-Alpha-Minolta-MA-Mount-Adapter-A65-A55-A77-/260913665687?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cbfaa9697#ht_2542wt_1396

However when using glass-less adapter you will need to accept the fact that you won't be able to achieve infinity focus. You could still use your lenses for macro or maybe shooting close portraits. I have no experience of using such adapter though. Doesn't cost much so it is probably worth the try.
