The ceremony for the first day of issue was hosted Monday by Gary Barksdale, the acting chief postal inspector, at the Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York.

Hines, who died at 57 of cancer in 2003, was an actor, singer and choreographer revered for his unique style of tap dancing. The Postal Service highlighted his contribution to the dance style by using an image of Hines showing the taps on the bottom of his shoe.
