I just went to digikey and searched for TCXO and 10 MHz

it's what you pay for - if the spec says -135 at 10kHz, and that's all,
then that's what they test. - that's cheaper.
A $100 oscillator will tend to have a lot more data than a $2 one <grin>
At some point, you just BUY a batch of oscillators and test them yourself.
