What is good ham and where do I get it?

Sorry if this has been discussed before -- couldn't see anything via search.

I love ham. But I buy it at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's where I've only had the soft kind that comes sliced and is also a little gummy. Whole Foods used to carry whole Niman Ranch hams to slice but I haven't seen them in a long time.

So, where do I get the kind of delicious ham I had once at Cesar, for example? It was dry, thin, fragrant and meaty, and I haven't ever seen it in supermarkets. I'm guessing I'm looking for a good jamon or prosciutto -- or am I wrong?
