It’s an interesting question as most of them end up as cheap box filler material.

If we are talking about a common book then I would say X-Force 1 in a 9.8. It doesn't say so on the cover but I believe it says so on the polybag. 

Would something like Spider-man 1 Platinum Edition count?

It is a good one. While MCIC 1 was the first and only one I could think of that had any significant value, I had completely forgotten about this one.

If the horror mags count, FMOF 1 will be hard to beat. I believe there have been some sales close to 5k. No 9.8 or 9.6 copies are known; if a 9.8 were to exist, I wouldn't be surprised to see it make $15k+

$25K plus, IMO for a 9.6, $15K would be a bargain. 9.8 is a moot point. Never going to see one. Probably not in our lifetimes anyway.

This is actually a good question !

Another good question is:  What is the least valuable comic which has “Collectors Item Classic” on the cover?  Just to make it interesting, they have to be 9.6 or higher.

It's not on the cover, but I don't think anything will beat these advertisements for hyping an upcoming book and actually being right:

Vampirella 1

Vampirella #1 9.8  $13,145 way back in 2016.  9.6: $7878 in 2019. 

Famous Monsters of Filmland: 9.4  $12,500 in 2006 

Famous Monsters has only three 9.4s on the census and none higher. Based on the $12,500 for one of the highest graded back in 2006, running a 9.6 Vampi against a 9.6 FM in the same auction would be an interesting contest, although IMO, the 9.6 FM (highest graded at 9.6 and only the one highest graded) would win.
