Grand Forks Daily Herald, January 7, 1915:
Looks like the team-instigated hatchet job is at least 100 years old today.

Milwaukee Sentinel, December 30, 1914:
It was worth a shot, particularly if he didn’t really want to jump. All they could do was say no.
Anyway, if you adjust for inflation, Collins was asking for the equivalent of a three year contract worth a total of around $1.85M in 2014 dollars.

Tacoma Times, December 23, 1914:
Later that day, the Collins family received calls from Mike Rotch, Oliver Klozoff, I.P. Freely, and Jacques Strap.

Washington Herald, December 9, 1914:
According to the salary data at BB-Ref, Collins actually made $15,000 a year over the course of this contract. That’s more than twice his reported 1913 salary.
Also, I imagine Collins was happy to join the White Sox. The Athletics, having sold or waived virtually their entire roster over the past two months, were a sinking ship in December 1914.
