At the precipice of international stardom with an English album on the way (1995's "Dreaming of You"), the 23-year-old singer was gunned down by the president of her fan club in a Corpus Christi motel room on March 31, 1995.
Noel's repainted and restyled tribute to Selena is up for auction on eBay.
